Are there any figures for medical staff, ie doctors, nurses, orderlies and stretcher bearers, who were killed or injured in the Great War?

That`s just what I wanted, David, Thanks for that -the question arose after reading true war experiences which included a doctors description of his life on the front.

You will need to search for nurses separately [QAIMNS etc]

Thanks again David,sadly the medical casualties do not seem to figure much in the majority of the Great War films.
