"On arrival at railhead or any other place where sick and wounded are to be taken up, the O.C. of the train receives from the Ambulance Train Embarkation Medical Officer a list of patients who are for the train, so many "sitting" cases and so many "lying" or stretcher cases. Either he or one of the two junior M.O.'s of the train, or both of them, remain on the platform and with this list check each patient as he arrives and detail him to a place on the train. The sisters remain on the train and receive the patients and settle them in comfortably and see them fed and attended to. Orderlies also remain on each coach to help receive them. Other orderlies unload the patients from the ambulances and carry them to the medical officer."
