Description

The role of the Auxilary Ambulance Service during the Second World War in London and other cities is undocumented and forgotten. No other wartime service, from Bevin Boys to the Land Army, has been so totally ignored. From over 130 stations, an estimated 10,000 volunteers collected the living and dead victims of the bombs, using crudely adapted outdated commercial vans. These volunteers, coming from all social and career backgrounds, were plunged into a scenario as traumatic and horrific as anything encountered by any of the other services.show more
