New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy
The lack of wireless communication produced serious complications. Contact between the different medical units was often lost and an ADS sometimes did not know the location of the MDS. The MDS also was often out of touch with the administrative officer either of the Division or the Corps. In what amounted to an enormous no-man's-land, no other means of communication was practicable. The plight of our captured medical units would have been much less serious if they had been able to apprise the staff officers of their difficulties.
