Hello all, I found this on a war poetry website. I have emailed the only military historian I know, and he doesn't know of a GW1 RAMC DCM holder, or a RAMC Captured soldier. I think he was an OTT, reading the intro. If the poor chap is suffering from being a POW, can we help????????? Anyone wanna comment? Poem by Combat Medic Robert Johns Robert Johns introduces his poem I retired from the army in 2000, after 24yrs service,as an anaesthetic technician in the RAMC. I served in the Falklands,& the 1991 Gulf War with various field hospitals. I was also a POW during the 1991 Gulf War & was dreadfully abused by my captors. Since retiring from the army, I have been employed as an assistant coroner near where I live. To this day I still suffer from the physical,& mental injuries acquired during these two conflicts. Robert Johns, DCM.LLB. SRN. MIOT. Combat Medic I am a combat medic, I serve to help the wounded, Whatever your colour,race,or creed, I carry neither bomb or bullet. With an aid kit on my back, An armband on my sleeve, I race across the battlefield, Bringing help unto the needy. Through shot, shell, and rifle fire, I care for every wounded soul, I tend and toil from dawn to dusk, And then I toil some more. After the battle has been fought, The soldiers have all gone home, Spare a thought for the combat medic Who is long time dead and gone. Robert Johns Copyright R. Johns 2003.
