Regimental Aid Post or "dressing station" in open ground near Monchy le Preux in 1917. Located near the front line in a reserve trench would be the Battalion Medical officer, orderlies and stretcher bearers. Front line units such as infantry provided only the most basic care, perhaps light first aid or a drink before passing the wounded to the Advanced Dressing station.Transport was by walking,hand cart, wheeled stretchers or trolley lines-depending on the conditions.


This pin is in repsonse to the Stetz piece. Stetz' article explores whether talking about a traumatic event can lead to healing or exacerbate an open wound. I chose this first aid poster because the "bandage" proposed by some (that is, talking about trauma) is not always effective for everyone. For the Comfort Women, talking about their past was only painful. @Amanda Fawcett
