Re: Flagstaff Heads

For what it's worth, in the US Navy , ships boats assigned to certain officers had a device fitted to the peak of the flag staff. The type of device was determined by the officer's rank. From my 1944 US Navy Deck Officers Guide: A spread eagle, for officials whose official salute is 19 or more guns....

Re: [REF] Preparation for Overseas Movement Markings

Ok, now my stupid questions for the day. 1. Just which units actually used POM markings? For example, some units involved in the European Theater there never seem to have any examples of POM markings. 2. What period of time were they used? Just up to D Day or throughout the European campaign? 3. Is ...

Re: WW2 Era White Uniform "Tunic"

You sure don't see many of these around anymore. Great find. The officer's White Dress uniform was not required for any officer in the continental United States, but was listed as an optional tropica dress uniform. The 1942 Officer's Guide states that the Service Uniform is an appropriate dress unif...

Re: 97th Evacuation Hospital

So the next question is, was an Evacuation Hospital a free standing unit, or was it part of a larger parent unit? Secondly, if they did not have a DI did they have a patch? And while we are on the subject, was the 97th Evac. Hopt. part of the 3rd Army? This answer may have been in the unit history i...

Plasma

Help. I am in need of information regarding Bristish plasma suppliers during the war. Specifically a name and address of a British wartime supplier. Since plasma was originally a British idea, I assume they had several sources of supply during the war. Also helpful would be any photo or drawing of a...

Re: Looking for some things

Peter Those urethral syringes are tough to find. Asepto made them up until a few years ago. The larger 2 ounce surgical irrigation version is still made and available. I have been looking also, for over a year and no luck yet. Hayes Otoupalik has a similar syringe, but it too is the larger ear irrig...

Re: [REF] Chest MD2 contents

Ben I am pretty sure the bracelet type was used, but what I curious about was if the set with the different heads that came in a neat little leather case was used much. I see this set listed in my period commercial supply catalogs, so I know they offered it comerically. By the way, I just received t...

Re: [REF] Chest MD2 contents

That is indeed a wonderful photo of the Ford stethoscope box. A couple of notes on stethoscopes. 1. The type with both a bell and diaphragm (Sprague-Bowles style) was manufactured inthe 1940's but the Army used the Bell only type (Ford style) Then, as now, the stethoscope was considered a personal i...

Re: Olympic Air Show 19-20 Jun

That sounds like a good event. Sadly it conflicts with another event in Central Oregon, in which I am a principal coordinator. We are confirmed to be at the Normandie event at Fort Stevens on 17 July, the Evergreen Aviation Museum event on 14 August, the Campfires and Candlelights at Fort Vancouver ...

Stethoscopes

Not sure where to put this, but I have found a source for new made, 1940s style Ford Stethoscopes. DME Supply Group on the internet is a large medical supply house, they have no minimun, and shipping is fair. They still sell the same old single bell Ford Army model, and for only $8.25 US each! This ...

I never did find readable QM drawings for this item. The wheels, springs and some of the bar stock are of specific known dimensi...

Re: What is this box?

I am not sure WHICH desk it is; I didn't realize there were two. It belongs to a friend and we will look it over and see if there are any ID marks. I suspect from the contents list it is the #1 box. The contents list is a hugh help in getting this stocked properly. Thanks.

Re: What is this box?

To Midical,
That is great information on the contents of the box in question. Does your reference book happen to have a listing of the contents for the steel Medical Dept Field Desk of the same era? If so it would be great to see it too.
