This is an auction for BORNE FREE: THE WELLINGTON FREE AMBULANCE 1927-1994, by A W Beasley.

"As the author of this book points out in its introduction, the Wellington Free Ambulance is something of a phenomenon, unique in New Zealand and daily proof of the acceptance by a community that a time of crisis is not one to be ruled by financial considerations. Here is the story of a an institution which has flourished for two-thirds of a century on the strength of the goodwill it generates, and of the people who have made it what it is - of personalities and politics, of crises surmounted and emergencies handled, of progress in vehicles and equipment and in the expertise of its staff, of loyal service and abiding commitment. The author has long had an interest in the work of the Wellington Free Ambulance, in the course of his practice as an orthopedic surgeon in Wellington, then when his own Churchill Fellowship in 1973 enabled him to study road safety measures in a number of countries, and shortly afterwards as a member of the regional committee of the Ambulance Transport Advisory Board. He is thus able to write with a keen understanding of the work of this remarkable service."
