Description

Concerning Base Hospital No. 5 was, according to its editors, originally conceived "on the same idea of a college year book, to contain personal write-ups of every member of the unit…. Steps were immediately taken to get together pen sketches of every officer, nurse and enlisted man in the unit." While principally a biographical record, the volume includes a description of the unit's Mobile Hospital No. 6 which was set up near the front lines to treat the wounded who could not be easily transported back to the hospital.
