Wounded with Emily Mayhew
- 25 February 2015 7:30-8:45pm
To her surprise, Emily Mayhew found that the bulk of First World War medical records was destroyed in the mid-1920s. Her book about the journeys of injured soldiers from battlefield to recovery in Britain relies heavily on fascinating first-hand accounts of those who cared for them – stretcher bearers, ambulance drivers, nurses and medical officers. It is also the story of how these pioneers pushed forward the boundaries of battlefield medicine. Emily is passionate about spreading the word about the dedication and sacrifice of these unsung heroes.
Tickets, including refreshments, £5.00 until 31 August, thereafter £6.00.
