In August 1916, 75 intrepid women set out from Liverpool for the Russian Front. They were a unit of the Scottish Women's Hospital, led by Dr Elsie Inglis. They would form two front-line medical... More > units, attached to the Serbian army. This diarist, Ysabel Birkbeck, was one of the ambulance drivers, and she recounts their work and fun with honesty and humour: the long journey by ship, train and barge to Medjidea, the work of moving injured men across trackless country, excursions on horseback, including a trip to the front lines, and the first chaotic retreat across the Danube. After a brief rest, it was back to work, until the whole Allied army retreated from Romania, with the SWH ambulances in the rear, picking up the wounded.
