Battlefield Casualty Drills, an aide memoire booklet intended for use by British Army medics on active service, tenth edition January 2018.

When someone is injured in battle, rapid intervention and clear thinking are key. In this potentially chaotic situation, this booklet gives the person responding simple step-by-step instructions and flowcharts to guide them to the best outcome possible for the patient. Army medics are highly trained specialists, but for more than 20 years it has been important to the army that all combat personnel are able to give immediate medical attention. That makes this booklet, which is regularly updated to reflect best practice, an essential piece of kit for all soldiers.
