'Reading of the fall of Pretoria - Convalescent Soldiers, General Hospital No.10, Bloemfontein', 1900

Stereoscopic photograph, Boer War (1899-1902), 1900.

During the South African conflict 22,000 troops were wounded. A further 74,000 were treated for diseases like typhoid and dysentery. As well as battalion medical officers to treat casualties in the field, the newly-formed Royal Army Medical Corps (established in 1898) preserved the lives of many. In addition to Army field ambulances and hospitals, voluntary organisations set up hospitals, first-aid posts and medical units.

From a box of 89 stereoscopic cards entitled, 'South African War through the Stereoscope Pt 2 Vol 1', published by Underwood and Underwood, and produced by Works and Sun Sculpture Studios, 1900 (c).
