§ 36. Mr. Burden
asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements exist for the treatment of British troops wounded in Korea.
§ Mr. Head
The Commonwealth Division has the normal three field ambulances and one field dressing station for light cases. Casualties are then evacuated to a mobile Army surgical hospital. Thence, when fit to travel, they go by air to the 29th British General Hospital in Japan. From there, serious cases are brought to this country by air, while the remainder pass to a convalescent training depot before returning to duty.
§ Mr. Burden
May I ask my right hon. Friend whether, in addition to that, where no facilities of our own are immediately available, it is advisable and feasible for American facilities to be called upon in an emergency?
