Spanish Medical Aid Committee ambulance

Ambulance bought by the Dunedin branch of the SMAC for the Spanish Civil War.

The Spanish Medical Aid Committee (SMAC), the Communist Party, and a number of trade unions raised enough funds through raffles, exhibitions, film screenings and public talks from civil war veterans to send three nurses – René Shadbolt, Isobel Dodds and Millicent Sharples – directly from New Zealand to Spain.

Money was also raised to buy a field laundry truck and ambulance for the Republican army, as well as medical supplies for the refugee camps established across the French border.
