RAAF Nursing Sister, Squadron Officer Harriett Hardy Fenwick from NSW adjusts the litter strap of an Australian Army soldier WIA as he is flown home on a RAAF Hercules for medical treatment, 1965. Between 1965 and 1971, more than a hundred members of the Royal Australian Air Force Nursing Service flew more than 3000 sick and injured Australian and New Zealand servicemen on aeromedical (‘medevac’) flights from Vietnam to Australia. The patients were transported in litters, stacked four deep and four high and were usually accompanied only by the nurses and medical orderlies.
