Event description

Description

This is a presentation by Alistair Hollington, who is a new speaker at the branch and who has been specially selected due to the talk he has prepared.

The Royal Army Medical Corps' field ambulances were vital for the survival of wounded soldiers, and were exceptionally busy at the Battle of Arras in 1917. The flow of casualties down the evacuation chain from the Regimental Aid Post to the Casualty Clearing Station can gauge the effectiveness of the various field ambulances, as can the ability of the medical chain to stretch itself forward during the successful attacks.

Alistair will also examine how flexible to the tactical situation the field ambulance and its chain of evacuation could be.
