More About this Record

New Zealand and American wounded kept the Field Ambulance crews very busy right from the first day of the landing on Mono Island. After receiving attention at advanced dressing stations as many of the wounded as possible were evacuated by landing craft to Guadalcanal. Serious cases were treated and cared for at the Field Hospital which had been quickly organised on Stirling Island on the day of the landing.
