For his services he was awarded the Serbian Order of Takova. In 1878 Hare became a Licentiate of the Society of Apothecaries.

EVAN HERRING HARE, M.A., F.R.C.S., was born at Putney in 1851, and was educated at Guildford, Westminster,and St. John's College, Oxford. His death, which took place on April 25th, calls to mind experiences of more than half a century ago, when in 1876 Serbia, backed unofficially by Panslavist Russians, made war on Turkey. The British National Society for Aid to the Sick and Wounded in War, a society which had been formed to help the sufferers in the Franco-German war of 1870-1,was still in being, but was slow to act. Thereupon sympathizerswith the Serbians organized the Eastern WarSick and Wounded Fund, under the chairmanship of Sir E. Letchmere, which sent out a number of surgeons under the direction of Mr. MacKellar of St. Thomas's Hospital to form an ambulance at the seat of war in Serbia. Those surgeons, of whom E. H. Hare was one, did good work at the front in difficult circumstances, -or the commissariat and supply department was defective. Later in the year the British National Society took over the ambulance and sent out a party of surgeons under Mr. (afterwards Sir William) MacCormac, in which I held a warrant as dresser. My first acquaintance with Hare
was in billets at a little village behind the front line. Subsequently I served with him in the British Ambulance in Belgrade, and accompanied him on a tour of the Drina front. For his services in this war he received the Gold Cross of the Order of Takova from King Milan of Serbia. In 1879 Hare served as a civil surgeon in Zululand under Sir Garnet Wolseley. After his return to London he resumed his studies, and obtained, in 1887, the diploma of Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons. Meanwhile he had gone into general practice, first at Kew and afterwards in Hornsey, where he settled in 1886, and where he lived for the rest of his life. He acquired a large practice, and became the valued friend of a large number of people in Hornsey, as the presence of a congregation of some five hundred at his funeral on April 29th testified. He took an active interest in local affairs, particularly in Church matters and the Boy Scout movement.
He was chairman for four years of the Hornsey (Central) Conservative Association, and was also a Knight Companion of the Prixnrose League. Hare was a man whom many people trusted, and rightly, for he kept his head in trying circumstances; it might have been said
of him that he was " a good man to go tiger-shooting with." He lost two sons in the great war, and is survived by a widow, two sons, and two daughters.
