The evacuation of wounded men from this Detachment, should an accident occur, is very difficult, as it is far away from anywhere. Four serious accidents have occurred since January 1944 and on each occasion it was only after the lapse of several hours that the German doctor was obtainable. The delegate asked that in future the Head of the Detachment should be authorised to send wounded or injured man direct to the neighbouring lazaret. This suggestion was adopted.
