New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy



To establish an MDS nearer to the forward elements of the Division than 6 MDS, which was functioning on Route 2 near Tavarnelle, 4 Field Ambulance under Lieutenant-Colonel Edmundson on 4 August occupied at Casa Vecchia a fine old-world mansion on the southern slopes of the hills overlooking Florence, and only 7 miles from the river Arno. The unit was joined by 1 FSU, 2 FTU, and NZ Section MAC, but only a small number of battle casualties was admitted.
