Re: Seeking History of 309th Medical Battalion

Peter, Thanks for the links. The article on the 53rd is simply awesome. What a great resource. Yes it is definitely a full load transporting the display. I have an 18' Dovetail trailer, and we pack the WC-54 to the max, fill the bed and back seat area of my F-250, plus strap a lot of things on the t...

Re: Seeking History of 309th Medical Battalion

Ah... I found the article. The article was by Kate Nolan, first published in the Bulge Bugle, a journal of the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge.

It was the 53rd Field Hospital that served the 84th during the Bulge.

Now the research can begin.

Re: Seeking History of 309th Medical Battalion

The rest is set up with WW...

Seeking History of 309th Medical Battalion

I have found a thread on the forum posted back in 2007 by my friend Todd (Firetoad) He has since left the hobby due to real life concerns. That thread was a discussion about DI's for the 309th, which I have discovered the unit never had. Where can I find information on the 309th Medical Battalion in...

Re: Carrier, Field, Collapsible 9917500

OK - here is a link to 20 photos of the early field carrier. Sorry about the lack of quality - it has gotten cold out here in the wild west, and I wasn't dressed for it when I unloaded the van. Brrrr. If you need a specific shot or dimensions, let me know & I will get it for you. http://s119.ph...

Beautiful item Ben. I have really been considering building a reproduction. I just need the dimensions.
My specialty is metal fabrication.

Re: ETO Blood Bank marmite can

Awesome, that is one of my dream items also. Had a friend try to sell me his when I was restoring my ambulance and I decided to put the money into the ambulance instead... Still kicking myself over that one.

Ben, thanks for posting the Fonts.
