A busy scene in the treatment room of the First Aid Post, set up in a room in a school, probably Mary Boon School, on the corner of Earsby Street and Bishop King's Road, near Avonmore Road. In the foreground, a nurse treats a woman with a head injury, whilst another nurse cleans the wounded leg of a young boy, who had been rescued from under a pile of rubble. In the background, a doctor and superintendent nurse deal with a back injury. Several other nurses can be seen around the room dealing with various injuries. Posters on the walls in the background encourage people to support the war effort in a number of ways.
