Artificial Limb Making

Occupational therapy turns full circle, as amputee soldiers learn to make artificial limbs for others

Non-Fiction 1916 1 mins

This newsreel item was no doubt intended as a positive message, much like the 'and finally' of modern TV news. But today, it also serves as a poignant reminder of just how many were physically disabled by their wartime experience.
