Australian Medic Team
Medical support in the jungle was vital, with tropical diseases causing more casualties than enemy fire. Lucky for the Australians, they could call on the local Papuans to assist them in evacuating the wounded by stretcher as the terrain made it impossible for vehicles to perform this role.
In the Pacific theatre, the Japanese often deliberately targeted medics, so the Australians stopped wearing the Red Cross and some went into action armed.
