'Commando Medical Service', 1945

Coloured lithograph recruiting poster after Abram Games (1914-1996), 1945.

Like all other potential Army and Royal Marine commandos of World War Two, medics volunteered from their existing units and were only accepted as commandos after passing a rigorous selection process. Each commando unit (usually around 450 men) normally had one surgeon and seven Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) personnel.

From a collection of 45 posters from World War Two (1939-1945).
