Comments: The detailed history of the 9th Field Ambulance 1916 to 1994.

The prime role of a Field Ambulance officer is the evacuation of casualties from the battlefield, a task often undertaken by stretcher bearers and drivers while under heavy enemy fire. The constant thread of bravery and self sacrifice, in both world wars, and particularly during the period as POWs of the Japanese, recurs throughout the book.

This absorbing account of the work of the 9th Field Ambulance over a 78 year period from its inception in 1916, through to its disbandment in 1994.

Covers the 9th Field Ambulance (AIF) at the following:

    * 1916-1919 France and Belgium
    * 1921-1938 Australia
    * 1939-1945 Australia and New Zealand
    * 1940-1945 (as 2/9th Field Amb) Australia, Malaya and Singapore
    * 1952-1994 Australia

A comprehensive history, this book is illustrated with many photos and maps, thus bringing to life, some of the personalities who served with courage and skill in the unit.
