With The Royal Army Medical Corps in Egypt by Serjeant-Major R.A.M.C. (1865 - 1944).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/with-the-royal-army-medical-corps-in-egypt-by-tickner-edwardes/
Throughout the First World War, members of the Royal Army Medical Corps provided constant support for British and Allied military troops whether they were fighting on the frontline or engaged in other operations within all areas of the conflict.

With the Great War continuing unabated and the battlefront extending through Europe into the Middle East and beyond, a rapid increase in military medical support facilities and infrastructure was urgently implemented to handle the ever increasing number of wounded, maimed and sick troops evacuated from the combat zone that needed to receive urgent medical and life-saving care.

Commandeering and requisitioning suitable buildings and facilities for the purpose, the British and Allied forces increased the number of hospital beds available from just a few hundred to many thousands. But these were barely sufficient to cope, when you consider that within a few days of the first fateful landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula in April 1915, the wounded began to pour into Egypt. In the first ten days alone no fewer than 16,000 cases were landed and distributed among the hospitals ashore.

Published in 1918, this book is the personal memoir of Tickner Edwardes who was an operating theatre orderly based in Egypt during the First World War. In it, he brings his uniquely perceptive and eloquent writing style to document the roles and responsibilities undertaken by the R.A.M.C. in Egypt to maintain the health, welfare and wellbeing of all personnel in whatever field of operations they were engaged in.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Dave - a couple of things that I'm not too sure about:

1 - Serjeant-Major R.A.M.C. was a pseudonym used by Tickner Edwardes whom I have recorded three times before. When setting up the project template should I have given the author as Serjeant-Major R.A.M.C. or as Tickner Edwardes?

2 - I propose to have the filename as: withtheramcinegypt_##_edwardes_128kb.mp3 - Will this be OK?

Thanks

Steve

MW coming up.

I believe the pseudonym should be used. In the book summary the real author's name should be (and is) mentioned and I believe the two names can be linked though I've never done it before. Something new for me to learn. The file name is fine.

Edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. Time to pack my kit.
