Stretcher-Bearers: Saving Australians From Gallipoli To Kokoda
January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am
Australian soldiers praised stretcher-bearers on every battlefield of both world wars. From the landing at Gallipoli to the last campaigns of 1945, in desert, jungle, mountains and mud, Australian stretcher-bearers routinely risked their lives to save others. To win that praise, all bearers paid a high price. Their job was intensely dangerous and no category of Australian soldiers saw more of war‚Äôs suffering. In this talk Dr Mark Johnston, author of a new book on stretcher-bearers, explores their life-saving work.
