World War One Slides

This week we look at a collection of slides from a World War 1 field station. This series of glass lantern slide displayed were most likely taken from an army camp in Serbia during World War 1. In these images, doctors, nurses, orderlies, the wounded and soldiers are depicted. One particular slide shows the Scottish Women's Hospital 'Edith Cavell' Memorial Glasgow X-Ray ambulance. According to the Glasgow Herald, in 1916, the first X-Ray ambulance from Glasgow was sent to Serbia in 1916 so it may well be that this is the vehicle.
