Title:
Surgical Team, Stripped to the Waist
Date:
1943 March
Description:

In the heat of the midday African Sun, the surgical teams operated stripped to the waist and left the operating theater tent door wide open to get whatever breath of wind there might be.

They had been operating day and night because they had so many seriously wounded patients, both British and German. In this photo, the surgeon is searching for a bit of shrapnel in a soldier’s groin.

Location: 12th LFA [Light Field Ambulances], near El Hamma, Tunisia.
