Just watched a show on the History channel titled Falklands Combat medics. Which to me says what the medics are all about.

The following is a snippet from my book :

The Royal Army Medical Corps is the butt of most jokes in the forces - especially from the Regiments who think that to be a medic is to be a sissy.
In battle situations when a man is injured, his voice will carry high above the noise of shot and shell. The one word he shouts is, “MEDIC!” It is then realised that the medic is not such a sissy after all.
To all medics, I say: “Keep your head down, look after yourself, and keep making those house calls on the field of battle.”

Hi,
Silky they are all true heroes as you know the Medical Corps has 33 V C,S to its credit and two who won the V C TWICE no a bad record for non
combatants who where always in the thick of it in combat.
Regards
Bill.
