Information on Regimental Stretcher Bearers

Recommended Posts

Private_Robertson4568

My great grandfather Guildford Robertson belonged to the Australian 2nd Infantry Battalion as a stretcher bearer on the Western Front.

 

Could anyone please tell me if he would have been a full time stretcher bearer or not. And would he had spells on the frontline where he needed to carry a rifle?

 

He wore a patch that says "SB" on a half wreath. What does this mean?

 

Cheers,

Hugh Robertson
