Re: What is this box?

I know of a US Army WWI Medical Dept. field desk, with the same paint, folded seam construction, hinge and hasp style and embossed markings. I would agree this a WWI version of the WWII MD chest.

Re: Litter carrier

I too have been looking for one of these, over the past year or so. They sure do seem very hard to find. Where I live in Oregon, many of the originals were purchased as surplus and used as game carriers on hunting trips. Over the years most were beaten to pieces hauling mule deer over the lava beds,...

Re: Medical chest

It is not difficult to make the chests. Finding the hardware is the biggest headache. I made mine, with the trays for the #1, 2 and 4 chests. One very critical tip however is to insure the inside dimensions are exactly as specified . This is very important as all the trays are designed to fit inside...

Re: Update as of 01.02.10

This a great addition to the site. Well done article as usual. We use one of these in our living history impression and it works just like it should. This is a very robust and well designed item. The only problem is maintaining the unusual width ribbon. Our 66 year old original was quite dry, and re...

Re: starilization kit

Congratulations on your gift! Isn't that a wonderfully made item. It was issued to all medical, veterinary and dental officers, and was in the medical chest #1 and the medical pack B. It was used in conjunction with the hypodermic syringe set. It had two purposes; 1. To prepare medication for inject...

Re: Company aid man questions

Alan is certainly right. The real glory of the site is not the forum, it is the hugh wealth of information the site contains. Take some time and explore, and usually you will find the answers you seek.

Re: Pictures from D Day Conneaut

Nice pictures and set up. Good to see a lot of canvas and set up that all looks correct. Out here in Oregon we are much smaller. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Company aid man questions

Aside from the somewhat complicated training question, the question of command is simple. Two main groups. 1. Medical personnel at the regimental level, including the medical officers in the battalion aid stations, the litter bearer groups and the individual medical aid men attached to the platoons ...

Re: [REF] Chest, Flight Service

Your flight chest is a great find ! There is a photo on plate 22 in the MED 3 catalog. The parts list is interesting, thanks Ben. Not really much in there that is not in the MD2 chest, so you could do it. Would be a geat display. Again iteresting to note the evolution of medical practice during the ...

Re: "Display" Aid Station

Aid stations were specifically camouflaged for "their oun protection, for the safety of the patients under their care, and to avoid disclosing the position of other components of the force" according to the Mlitary Medical Manual, 1944. They went to great lengths to do this. Remember aid s...

Re: "Display" Aid Station

We have tried several set ups, thinking each one out as if we were actully working there. The illustration on page 43 in FM8-10 is a good example, but as the text states only an example. With the small wall tent, you cannot get all the equipment inside especially when the sides are rolled down. I re...
