The Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps on parade

During the Second World War, the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps was responsible for the treatment and rehabilitation of Canadian casualties in all theatres of war. These photographs, likely taken sometime in the summer of 1940, show an ambulance from Kitchener-Waterloo's 24th Field Ambulance. The banner hanging from the side of the ambulance reads: "Your Scrap Paper will make cartons for Blood Plasma if you put it out for collection on Thursday, August 10".
