4 ADS Under Air Attack

4 ADS Under Air Attack

On 20 April, while 5 Brigade was completing its positions, 4 Field Ambulance moved from the bivouac area just south of Lamia along the coastal road to a site about 18 miles south of Molos, page 96 where B Company was detached to form an advanced dressing station two miles inland from the road bridge at that point. Cover was lacking, however, and it was not long before enemy aircraft began a ceaseless bombing and strafing of everyone and everything that moved. The area became untenable, and the company was compelled to shift to a riverbed, flanked by hills, inland from the village of Molos. Contact was made immediately with regimental aid posts of 5 Brigade.
