Ms Susan Burnett delivers a personal account of WWI medical services in Gallipoli and the Middle East. Following her grandfather's memoirs of the Great War, and backed up by her own extensive research, Susan describes the limited medical services that aided the military from the battlefield on the beaches of Gallipoli to the poor sanitation in deserts of Egypt.

This lecture was part of the 'war and its aftermaths: some medical viewpoints' at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
