2nd Light Horse Brigade Field Ambulance 2nd Light Horse Brigade, ANZAC Mounted Division, AIF

About This Unit

The 2nd Light Horse Field Ambulance nominally supported the 2nd Light Horse Brigade but was under command of the ANZ Mounted Division.  Its role was to provide 2nd Line casualty evacuation for the supported Brigade.  This meant extracting casulaties from the immediate battle area to advanced dressing stations and other facilities to the rear.

The attached image illustrates the principal means of doing so - horse drawn carts.
