Hi I'm a big fan of the show and have a question for out of the trenches. I hope this is the correct place to post such a quest. I currently work as an emergency medical technician working on ambulances and in hospital emergency rooms. I'm wondering what first aid at the front was like. where there specialized medics attached to units, if so what kind of training if any did they have. Also what kind of equipment and or arms did these medics carry. Sorry for such a long question please keep up the great work.Posted 10 months ago by Anonymous.
I've got a question you can have some advance time to research, as it takes (took) place on 23 April 1918, or roughly two months from now in TGW time. BTW, don't bother trying to pronounce my name. Even Indy, being a resident of Sweden, will likely butcher it; he's handicapped by first being an American. ========== Indy and Crew: I was recently reminded of the Zeebrugge Raid. FFI, see URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeebrugge_Raid and URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUS9G-c9OIc I've heard references to how the Intrepid and Iphigenia were sunk in the wrong place, but I have NOT seen any reference to where the correct location should have been and/or why the ships commanders did not sink the ships at said correct location(s). Please elaborate. Keep up the good work, LP Long time watcher, first time poster -- ========== Note: I deal better with either SMS or E-mail messages, and have arranged for my cell phone carrier to turn OFF my VoiceMail. ========== I'm looking out for the classes of 2025 & 2028... My favorite "West Wing" quote (Ep. 1-18): Sam Seaborn: "Mallory, education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes, we need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six-figure salaries. Schools should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That's my position. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG-V3k_Xl2s ==========Posted 7 months ago by Anonymous.
