Re: Repro Plasma kit

but would like to borrow an opened tin and an empty bottle It's a little belated (as I have been recovering from surgery and other medical problems) but if you ever get someone who wants to run with the idea, I have a mold I made of one of the plasma bottles and have an opened tin that I'm happy to...

Re: Plasma and blood transfusion setup

Just wanted to ask again about getting the measurements for that drip chamber. Also if anyone has plasma and blood bottles they are willing to measure, those would prove very helpful in IDing the various common variations on that "theme". I've always been a collector of glass items, so th...

Supply Questions

Does anyone have a packing list for the "chest, field service"? Does anyone know what the heck the records could be referring to when they list "Chest, medical supplies 'A'" and "Chest, medical supplies 'B'"? And now, for the probably toughest question of them all, does...

How would you join tents together like this?

I came across these diagrams last night but was wondering what they would use to hook the ward tents together like this? I'm rather clueless when it come to the ward tents since I've never seen one in person. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y58/usafmedic45/WW2/ORLayout.jpg http://i3.photobucket.com...

AAF Medical Uniforms

Does anyone know what the "standard" work uniform for a AAF base medical detachment would have been? I'm trying to plan ahead for Oshkosh this year and my "regular Army" impression isn't going to be appropriate.

Re: WC 18 "Load Out"

Hey Fellas- Has anyone ever seen a "load out " / Equipment List for a WC-18 ambulance ( or similar model)? A freind has one and was asking about what all gear it carried. Aside of 4 litters and a standard vehicle first aid kit I think that was about it, unless the medics put it aboard. Do...

Re: Update as of 19.02.11

The whole "weapons for medics" issue seems to depend upon where the medic was serving at. Yes true, but where did they wore their guns? Hidden inside their uniforms, or worn in a holster hooked to a pistol belt? Based on what I was told by veterans, if they were in the PTO and had a weapo...

Whenever you wanted to know the rate you were giving something at.

Can you provide measurements for all the items you have?

Re: Update as of 19.02.11

Wow! This is a great treasure of information and I found it an incredible read. There was a couple entries especially interesting and should address some questions about weapons for medics. Every corpsman or aidman I have ever talked to who served in operations against the Japanese has mentioned ca...

Phil, you have me and as many of my folks as I can muster to man the rail car. We will be 307th AMC (Hey Ben, hop a flight to O'Hare and we'll pick you up on the way!) and the teams from the Third Auxiliary Surgical Group for the weekend.

Anyone planning on attending? I am hoping to organize the medical reenactors at this event to get a more impressive setup. Would anyone else be interested in this?
