EDITORS COMMENTS
Sanctuary Wood Top of Aid Post: A Glimpse into the Past of World War I Medical Care This evocative photograph captures the moment of respite and healing amidst the chaos of the Battle of the Somme during World War I. The image, titled 'Sanctuary Wood Top of Aid Post dug out,' depicts Acting Sergeant Herbert Gibson, MM, of the 1st Northumbrian Field Ambulance, Royal Army Medical Corps, tending to wounded soldiers at the makeshift aid post located at the top of Sanctuary Wood. Born in September 1889, Gibson and his team worked tirelessly to provide medical care to the injured soldiers, often under difficult and dangerous conditions. The photograph offers a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by medical personnel during the Great War. The aid post, dug out of the ground, serves as a sanctuary for the wounded, providing them with much-needed medical attention and a brief reprieve from the horrors of the battlefield. The soldiers, some with bandaged heads and limbs, lean against the makeshift wooden structures, their expressions a mix of relief and exhaustion. The 1st Northumbrian Field Ambulance, part of the Royal Army Medical Corps, played a crucial role in the care of the wounded during the Battle of the Somme. The regiment was responsible for collecting, transporting, and treating the injured soldiers, often under heavy enemy fire. This photograph provides a glimpse into the daily life of these brave medical personnel and the vital role they played in the history of military medicine. As we reflect on the past, this image serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by medical personnel during times of conflict and the importance of providing quality healthcare to those in need.
