Dr. M. L. Bangara was born at Mangalore in South India in 1881.
After qualifying as a doctor at Edinburgh University he moved to
Cinderford in 1915 working in his own practice and at the Dilke
Memorial Hospital.

In addition to his work as a doctor, he was an active member of
the community and a leading light in a variety of local
organisations including the Freemasons, Cinderford Horticultural
Society, Dickens Fellowship, Excelsior Band and Cinderford Male
Voice Choir.

Dr Bangara died of complications following influenza shortly
after his 46th birthday in 1927. The 'In Memoriam' pamphlet
published later that year shows the very considerable affection
and respect in which he was held in Cinderford.
