Biography / Administrative history

The Canadian Army Medical Corps included field ambulance units, casually clearing stations, general hospitals, stationery hospitals, special hospitals, convalescent hospitals, sanitary sections, mobile laboratories and hospital ships. Field ambulance units removed casualties from dressing stations and regimental aid posts to casualty clearing stations where urgent surgery was performed. Patients then proceeded to general or stationery hospitals and thence to a special hospital or a convalescent hospital. Sanitary sections supervised the sanitation of camps, billets, etc. and inspected the water supplies in their allotted areas.
