STORY OF THE 2/1st WESSEX FIELD AMBULANCE 1914-1919

£8.99

The Field Ambulance was not a vehicle but a mobile front line medical unit manned by troops of the Royal Army Medical Corps. It had responsibility for establishing and operating a number of points along the casualty evacuation chain, from the Bearer Relay Posts, taking casualties rearwards through an Advanced Dressing Station, and also providing a Walking Wounded Collecting Station. When it was at full strength a Field Ambulance was composed of 10 officers and 224 men.
