Evacuation in the Forward Areas

Evacuation in the Forward Areas

The evacuation of casualties was generally satisfactory. Jeeps were utilised to save hand carrying in the forward areas, especially in the mountainous areas and at Arezzo, and on many occasions in the PoggibonsiFlorence area. Otherwise, evacuation of casualties was satisfactory as main roads were available. At one period when the MDS was in the San Donato area, narrow roads and tracks with a large traffic volume of fighting vehicles and, later, supply vehicles caused the length of time taken for evacuation to 1 Mobile CCS at Siena to vary considerably. One-way traffic immediately relieved the situation.
