It wasn’t just soldiers who joined the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and went to war. Tasmanian doctors and nurses used their skills and experience in the Australian Army Medical Corps (AAMC) and the Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS). They worked just behind the front line in casualty clearing stations or in hospitals further back to tend to the wounded. Their duty? To bring sick and wounded soldiers back to fighting fitness as quickly as possible.
These are just some of the evocative photographs and objects featured in the exhibition, telling the stories of Tasmanian men and women who undertook medical service during WWI.
