The Great War: Medical Services


Women would form large parts of the medical relief service, at home, and eventually on the front line, with the Voluntary Aid Detachment and International Red Cross. At home, voluntary ambulance drivers would transport the wounded from the bombing raids to safety and medical care. In the trenches cases of infection, gangrene or trenchfoot were high and caused major problems for the soldiers, already trying to survive in the quagmire that engulfed them.
