Medical Units of 2 NZEF in Middle East and Italy

5 Field Ambulance Dressing Stations

5 Field Ambulance Dressing Stations

Fifth Field Ambulance spent a few days at Hymettus getting ready for its move northwards with 5 Brigade, which was to take up battle positions astride the Olympus Pass. The move to the forward areas began on 1 April, three days after the unit's arrival in Greece.

On arrival at Dolikhe on 3 April, it was found that the tactical situation dictated the selection of a site for the MDS on an exposed slope alongside the road leading down from the Olympus Pass. An ADS was set up by B Company at Ag Demetrios, in the Pass itself.
