Re: [REF] Medical Insignia

The firmest number I have heard on the transition to black was 1948. However with that being said I have seen some brown in use in Korea. I suspect they were phased in 1948 with a drop dead date of XXXX? Kind of like today where there are a few years transition time.

Re: Interesting...

Alain, Funny you should mention being sold your own items. I was at a militaria show a few years ago and had a guy try and sell me some "original" huck towels. Well, they were originals. My reproduction originals! I had sold a bunch over the internet to vaious collectors. I included an int...

Re: Navy-litter

You have a US Navy litter that was used for aerial evacuation....though these found their way into the regular supply chain as well. You'll sometimes see these on ships as well as the breakdown design allowed for easier manuver in tight below deck areas and allowed for compact storage in battle stat...

Re: Med dept U.S.N

You have a US Navy Aeromedical Evacuation Litter. These were made of Aluminum to save on weight. In the last pic you'll (not to overstate the obvious) notice what is likely a flight nurse checking on a patient, you can see part of the aircraft tail section to the left of the photo. There was also a ...

Re: How would you join tents together like this?

There was actually a "connecting vestible" made to do that. Years ago someone called me way into gods country to look at a "medical ward tent" they had. Upon my investigation in the barn it was just one of these connecting vestibules that was so dry rotted it literally fell apart...

Re: WC 18 "Load Out"

Johan, I think they did but didn't want to tell him that until I could confirm. I recall seeing somewhere about each litter would have two blankets and two patient straps but I have no idea where I read that now!

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. Doe...

Re: Oct 1941 Popular Science

It really makes me wonder if one was ever built and if a least a prototype, where is it today? If you Google "POPULAR SCIENCE" there are a bunch from this time period in the same format. Could be some gold waiting to be discovered!

Re: SN 7-157-896 Blanket, Paper, Field

The intent of these was to have a disposable drape/sheet/blanket for use in mass care / shelter ops that could be easily stored / used in austure conditions and eventually destroyed due to ra...

Re: [REF] 9502100 - Folding Field Dental Chair

Interesting. I wonder if it varied by maker. Mine are SS White, a large dental supply company, yours is from a toy company. I know dental equipment supply was a huge issue at the start of the war.

Re: [REF] Late war Red Cross vest

I have what is reputed to be a 1942 dated German original in my collection. If you'd like I can take dimensions and detailed pictures of it's construction. Like most Kraut gear it is well designed and complex!
