FS WWII Litter IV Pole

The pole is in great shape, but I can't say the same thing for the buckles. The straps should be good with a good cleaning, but you definitely want to replace or corrosion-control the buckles. Very rare. $25.00 plus shipping http://www.fortsusquehanna.com/sales/militaria/DSC01472.JPG http://www.fort...

Re: Early Stretcher?

Peter, FYI, nearly all Litter drill was done with 4 people. There were provisions for using two stretcher bearers in the manual, but the original intent of the Medical Field Service School was to have four people carrying one. I have moved people by litter with one other person more than 500 yards w...

Re: Early Stretcher?

I didn't measure it but the poles are definitely shorter than the WWII and later stretchers.

Early Stretcher?

I found this stretcher this past weekend. No military marks at all- but it looks military to me. What is it? http://www.fortsusquehanna.com/sales/militaria/DSC01405.JPG http://www.fortsusquehanna.com/sales/militaria/DSC01406.JPG http://www.fortsusquehanna.com/sales/militaria/DSC01407.JPG http://www....

My 1944 Stinson L-5E

I thought there would be some interest in my family's 1944 Stinson L-5E 44-17543. Our Stinson was built in late 1944 at the Wayne Michigan plant of Stinson Division, Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation. Very soon after, it was modified with radios and delivered to an overseas shipping depot. Th...

Re: ETO Use of the 3/4 Ton WC-64 KD Ambulance

I looked at it again, and I think you may be right. WC54 production was halted in November 1944. I don't know if they re-tooled for the WC64 right away, but they may have been done ahead of that. The first WC64's weren't made until January 1945, so they could have been in combat in ETO. My Stinson L...

Re: WC-54's & 1/4ton trailers

I have seen photos of WC54's towing jeep trailers and Ben Hur trailers. The Dodge WC54 did have a connection for a trailer, but it was not the typical universal 4-wire socket. It consisted of a junction box in the rear of the truck which had three wire terminals. You could remove the connector plug ...

FS 1945 Dodge WC64 KD Ambulance Project in USA

Fairly complete WC64 less engine. Other items missing- spare tire carrier, spotlight post, rear step (very similar to M43 step), top bows for cab canvas. The ambulance is rough but restorable and as you know very rare. Price includes delivery within 100 miles of Baltimore Md. I will assist with load...

Re: ETO Use of the 3/4 Ton WC-64 KD Ambulance

If you haven't found the excellent website, go to www.wc64.com. In the pictures and film section, WWII portion, there is one picture of a WC64 in Germany 1945.

Vixen Tor the Jeep

FYI, Vixen Tor the Jeep still exists. General Gerhardt had the jeep shipped home when he returned, and "gave" it to his driver, Sergeant Bob Cuff. Cuff didn't really want it, so he donated it "to the People of the State of Maryland." The jeep is in possession of the Maryland Nati...

14th Liaison Squadron

Hi, I wanted to announce that we have medical spots in our unit. We portray the 14th Liaison Squadron, which was attached to 3rd US Army in WWII. The squadron flew Stinson L-5's and we have a membership with various WWII Liaison Squadron aircraft. I own and fly Stinson L-5E 44-17543, veteran of ETO....
