2 NZ Field Transfusion Unit

A special truck equipped with a refrigerator for the storage of blood had been ordered by the New Zealand Government in January and arrived at the end of September. Steps were immediately taken to form a Field Transfusion Unit, such as the British unit which had proved so valuable in the Western Desert battles. Great assistance was given by OC 1 British Base Transfusion Unit in the assembling of equipment and training of staff and the unit was able to play its part in the advance from El Alamein.
