British WWII First Aid Post helmet. These staff dealt with the casualies of WWII, •Many first aid posts were located in adapted buildings, such as church halls or schools whose pupils had been evacuated. Others were in hospitals. Unusual locations included the Houses of Parliament and the Dulwich College cricket pavilion.
•Some posts were staffed entirely by the British Red Cross and some entirely by St. John Ambulance, while others had a mixed staff that also included probationers and Civil Nursing Reserve nurses. The number of first aiders varied with the size and location of the post.
•Each first aid post had three sections: one for receiving and sorting casualties, a second for giving treatment and a third where patients could rest before being sent home or to hospital.
