The July 2011 issue of the French Militaria Magazine has an article on D-Day POM codes....

Will check it out and see if it has new info.

Re: The infamous Utah Beach Medic Bag

A French collector sent me these pictures of a USN Medical Bag in his collection..... You can see the similarities between the USN and Army models... http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s234/johanwillaert/Forums/USNMedicBag-2.jpg http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s234/johanwillaert/Forums/USNMedicBa...

Re: The infamous Utah Beach Medic Bag

Thanks Ben, meanwhile I have found out that these would have seen extensive use in the Pacific. From what I was told these had an internal cardboard box. There would have been an Army version and a Navy version that are slightly different.

Still looking for official info though...

Re: The infamous Utah Beach Medic Bag

No, it's just plain webbing....

Size is roughly 12"x 8" and 2' high.... Bottom is reinforced...

No markings at all and in all these years I have never found any reference to it in any manual, book or website.

I know one other collector in Belgium who has one, but that's about it...

So after 25 years of looking at this picture and trying to figure out what the bag in between the kneeling medics is, I found one on Ebay the other day....

Plus the regular equipment, spare parts and tools that every Dodge carried... These would be listed in the TM or SNL...
