camaraderie


Two WWI French soldiers help a ‘shell–shocked’ Australian “Digger’ (soldier) negotiate 

through thick mud to receive medical treatment after fierce and constant German shelling.

Camaraderie remains a strong aspect between soldiers fighting together and the unwritten 

code is ‘never leave a mate behind’.


Today the term ‘shell shock’ is replaced by the modern medical and psychological term 

described as ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder’ (PTSD) and is a vital medical counselling 

service provided by veteran affairs departments for those soldiers returning home from 

horrific and devastating war zones.


Suicide rates among those soldiers affected by PTSD have soared in recent years given 

the ‘political’ nature of continued multiple deployments of soldiers to war torn regions.

Millions of soldiers during the horrific WWI battles suffered such psychological affects 

but very few received any kind of medical assistance and those who were affected 

were too ashamed to admit it.
