Great stuff Peter, what I like about the Hathi Trust is that their links are reliable unlike so many others in places like Wikipedia and such like. Thank you for posting.

Thanks for advising Peter. I found the chapter "Transportation of Sick and Wounded" page 240 interesting.
https://archive.org/stream/b22336412#page/240/mode/2up

I also found an earlier online book from the same author
https://archive.org/details/notesonwoundedfr00will
Notes on the wounded from the Mutiny in India : with a description of the preparations of gunshot injuries contained in the museum of Fort Pitt by George Williamson 1859 Archive.org.
