Work at the ADS

Buildings were taken over by the ADSs at this period because of the severe wintry weather and the impossibility of using tents in the muddy, waterlogged country. The buildings enabled the ADS to provide warmth, comfort, and resuscitation even in bad weather.

During the early period the active MDS was very close to the RAPs and a large proportion of the casualties was admitted direct to the MDS; much the same conditions were present when 4 MDS moved into Faenza later. At other times the ADS was called upon to carry out treatment in cases of delayed evacuation.
