t-sea109t-sea109aManuscript journal of Dr. J. Battarel who was a doctor with the French Marines in Indochina in 1897. He makes regular reports on medical conditions among the French Trailleurs in various named posts throughout the country. He talks about the conditions of the troops, the quality of the water, the sanitary situation, vaccinations, illnesses, etc. He follows the same reporting procedures at each post. He visits the same four posts every trimester and writes his overall conclusion. He then repeats this for the third and fourth trimester of 1897. He moves on to review other posts later on and takes detailed notes and constructs tables of his findings. He gives a thorough report of the condition of troops of the batteries and artillery in Hanoi in 1896. He talks of the level of discipline, food, latrines, wash areas, kitchens, conditions of the infirmaries and sick. Remarkably, he notes in detail the condition of 7 specific soldiers by name and rank, some of whom died and he reports on the autopsy findings. There are 117 pages of writing, as well as 4 photos.
