The 2nd Australian Field Ambulance served during the First World War.
Their role was the rapid collection of sick or wounded from front line aid posts. This meant they ran the same risks as combat troops and were under constant threat of shell fire and rifle or machine gunfire.
Attached to the 2nd Brigade, the 2nd Field Ambulance served at Gallipoli, in France and in Belgium.
