The new RACS display examines the role of surgeons in Korea,
Vietnam, East Timor and Afghanistan. Korea is sometimes considered
the 'forgotten war' but those who served remember the difficult
conditions, exacerbated by the rugged terrain and freezing weather.
A number of civilian military teams from Australia and New Zealand
went to Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s - these complemented the
army medical teams. The display also looks at Councillor, Annette
Holian's experiences in East Timor and Afghanistan and incorporates
current surgical projects in SE Asia.
