DescriptionTwo doctors wearing surgical gowns and masks and a female nurse attend the right arm of a native Papuan who lies on a hospital bed at the No 3 Casualty Clearing Station, Finshafen and undergoes a blood transfusion. There is a bandage on his left arm just above the elbow and the patient lies still with his eyes open and moves his left hand as if regaining feeling.
