Lecture | Mud, Blood and Bandages: The Royal Army Medical Corp on the Western Front, 1914-18
Wed, Dec. 12, 2018 1:30pm — 2:30pm
In this lunch time lecture historian Andy Robertshaw will look at how the medical services coped with the conditions of the Western Front and treated and evacuated the wounded. What role did women play in this process? Was it just 'luck' that kept you alive? Were there any medical advances and what is the medical legacy today of the Great War?
