Artists statement: The Australian Medical Corps was formed on 1st of July 1902. It was formed by combining the medical services of the armed forces of the various Australian colonies that have been in existence prior to federation. They had their origins in the medical structures of the British forces that have deployed to Australia during the late
18th and 19th centuries. The star of life is a cross symbol used by the medical services.
