Re: Identification of suture packs

As Malpaso points out, the change in the catalogue number dates this item as post-WW2. The lack of a zoning code (used by the US Postal Service pre-1963 until the Zoning Improvement Plan -- the so-called "ZIP Code" -- was implemented that year) suggests the manufacturer was situated in a ...

Re: Janesville Triangular Bandage

I still have a few new, unused current-issue ones remaining from my own service, which haven't even been opened. Looks like it's just a matter of re-packaging!

Re: 14th Liaison Squadron

Something similar here in Texas would be great as well. My own impression -- based on one of the characters in a period novel I'm also working on -- is a dual-rated AAF Service Pilot and Flight Surgeon of the Combat Glider Training School.

Re: Medic display CAF Hangar Dance Tulsa

I seldom go out on the "battlefield" simply because I think most battle reenactments are done in a hokey and often flat out disrespectfully inaccurate manner. They are staged simply to give people an excuse to play with their guns and everything else is secondary. (Et sequitur....) I must...

Re: AAF Medical Uniforms

This remains a good discussion topic, as my own impression -- actually based upon one of the characters in an historical novel I'm writing -- is a dual-rated AAF Flight Surgeon and Service Pilot of the Combat Glider Flying School.

Certainly that is as entertaining as it is historically authentic! You will want to download the US Army training film entitled Sex Hygiene from http://archive.org as well.

Re: Doctor Beaver's litter

Yours are unquestionably in the best condition I've seen for originals. One of my past Civil Air Patrol squadrons had a few of the same basic design (post-war production however) which were in nowhere near as good a condition. They were on hand simply as training aids and were relegated to a new(-is...

Re: M-43 field Jacket

I used to have an original M-44 until it was stolen a few years ago. I actually preferred it over my issued M-65 field jackets! I still want to get a replacement (accurate replica, not original -- I wear a 42L)
