The Field Ambulance was a mobile front line medical unit (it was not a vehicle), manned by troops of the Royal Army Medical Corps. Most Field Ambulances came under command of a Division, and each had special responsibility for the care of casualties of one of the Brigades of the Division. The theoretical capacity of the Field Ambulance was 150 casualties, but in battle many would need to deal with very much greater numbers. The Field Ambulance was responsible for establishing and operating a number of points along the casualty evacuation chain, from the Bearer Relay Posts which were up to 600 yards behind the Regimental Aid Posts in the front line, taking casualties rearwards through an Advanced Dressing Station (ADS) to the Main Dressing Station (MDS). It also provided a Walking Wounded Collecting Station, as well as various rest areas and local sick rooms. The Field Ambulances would usually establish 1 ADS per Brigade, and 1 MDS for the Division. 


The son named 4343115 Edward Aldridge Hadlow born 18.8.1915, served in East Yorkshire regiment. He was entitled to an war and defence medal, 8th army bar & Africa star, territorial efficiency medal, and four chevrons. Edward signed up 19.04.1934 in hull, serving with the east York’s until his death in 1944 April 16th. In this document lot it contains a newspaper clipping with his photograph and details of death.

In a letter to Mrs Hadlow, captain Watson expresses his deepest regret and states that private Hadlow was wounded at his post in an attack in the small hours of April 16th.
