I watched this short video on Auntie[^] about the way soldiers are treated on the battlefield. This morning, the BBC news studio interviewed a nurse involved in treating wounded soldiers at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan and a soldier who lost both lower legs and an arm in an IED bomb. I then watched this short video and collectively, I don't just appreciate much more what the troops are exposed to but I also have wonderful admiration for those behind the lines who look after them. The nurse described how all troops are shown basic first aid which helps to give the wounded a better chance of survival but when they can do no more, how fantastic a job is done back at base and the wounded's repatriation back home, sometimes to have family and friends with them before they die from from the awful injuries they endured.

There is good for all of us as much of the work treating soldiers injuries is improving our prospects of surviving serious road accidents for example which require A&E admission.

The exhibition is in Greater Manchester and I would love to be there and see it. If anyone does live there and hasn't heard of it, I'm sure it's very worthwhile.Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
