Sir John Hall (1795, Little Beck, Westmorland - 17 January 1865, Pisa) was a British military surgeon. Studying at Guy's Hospital and St Thomas's Hospital, he joined the Army Medical Service in June 1815, being posted to Flanders just in time for the final stages of the Waterloo campaign. He then served in Jamaicra (1818-1827 and 1841-44), Ireland (from 1835-36, and in 1844), Spain and Gibraltar (1836-39), South Africa {1847-51, during the Cape frontier wars) and Bombay (1851-54).
