British Army Ambulance Trains
Online Talk and Live Q&A with Dr. Brian Robertson
Streaming Here - 7pm, Tuesday 13th December 2022
Ambulance trains have been used in every major conflict since the early years of railways but never more so than in the Great War . It is fair to say that during the Great War almost all the wounded would have been carried in an Ambulance Train for some part of their journey from the Western Front back to Blighty. This would certainly have been the case for men from the various Oxfordshire Regiments. This talk will look at the somewhat forgotten history of Ambulance Trains and their use by the British Army right up to the end of the Cold War. Colonel (retd) Brian Robertson served in the RAMC and commanded the Ambulance Train Squadron RAMC(V) in BAOR between 1985-1994.
