Fang Farriers – Volume 1 (1914 – 1939)


A History of the Royal Australian Army Dental Corps

Volume One covers the history of the origins and development of the Australian Army Dental Corps from 1914 to the beginning of World War Two.

This book highlights many of the problems encountered by Dental Officers, who battled under very difficult conditions, to provide the best possible standard of dentistry for the soldiers serving in Germany, New Guinea, Egypt, France, England and Australia. Despite apathy, ignorance and opposition from the British Medical Corps, which dominated dental policy at the time, the senior Australian Dental Officers strove to develop a high standard for the Australian Army Dental Service.
