Newfoundland At Armageddon

“Another ambulance! It never ends. I haven't had time to assess the last round of wounded and now others arrive. This is overwhelming. Who should I help? Who can be saved? The hall is overflowing with patients. The moaning never stops and blood is everywhere. This one has shrapnel in his stomach, and that one has lost an arm, and the one over there has a huge hole in his face. Such suffering. God, give me strength.”

“We're racing against the clock… against death. Oh! Dear… that one has lost part of his face. Let's give him morphine. I'll tend to his injuries later. The soldier with the stomach wound, he has to be sent to Dr. Wakefield immediately. And that one, there, let's have a look at his injury. Oh!... we'll have to amputate, that's for sure. Oh! My God… it's my cousin! Tom... hold on… I'll do everything I can for you. For now, here is some morphine.”

“It's over now Tom. The only thing left to do is drainage. Dr. Wakefield did amazing work. The worst is over. Soon, you will be walking around with your prosthesis. Don't cry. I'm here. It will all be OK now. I promise you.”
