112171 Pte Frank Gearing, RAMC, continues his narrative. Read part 1 here.
We had cases of shell-shock but only during that period of transit from the CCS to the base but we didn't have anything to do with after treatments. Once they were off the train we got the train ready and if there was-a lot of action going on we were back up the line right away. All we did was just shake the blankets out of all the lice and back up the line again for another load.
