Just released recently is a wonderful book called Blood, Sweat and Fears which is about the
Medical Practitioners and Medical Students of South Australia who served in World War 1. As most of the Doctors from No 1 Australian Stationary Hospital were from South Australia then this book has become my new best friend.
‘Blood, Sweat and Fears: The Military Service of the Medical Practitioners and Medical Students of South Australia who served in World War 1’, is dedicated to the memory of the South Australian Medical Practitioners and Medical Students who served in the Army, Navy and Flying Corps in the Great War, 1914-1918: To commemorate those who lost their lives and to those who lost their health, faith, hope and aspirations and to celebrate the achievements of those who received Military or Civilian honours in recognition of their bravery under fire, their leadership and contribution to their profession and society in the aftermath of the war, and finally to those whose contributions remain unknown and unacknowledged.
