Reception Tent
Soldiers unload stretchers carrying the wounded from a truck to a reception tent at a Canadian casualty clearing station. Wounded soldiers would have first undergone surgical procedures at a main dressing station before transferring to a clearing station. From there, they would be transported by rail to a general hospital in France, or, for the seriously injured long-term care, to England.
