Re: Clearing station items

http://history.amedd.army.mil/booksdocs/wwii/actvsurgconvoli/Figures/fig69.jpg This is from a photo series at an aid station in Italy in 1945. One shot shows stacks of litters for the litter teams to grab (assuming they left the patient on the litter they used coming in), as well as a small pile of...

Re: litter support bracket 9779000

DRAWER 1 & 2 For the drawers, to fit my Chest 1 (modified) the drawers need to be built out of 1/2" BC plywood 16" wide, 12 1/2" tall and 10" deep. (16"x12.5"x10") There should be 3 holes drilled in the front and rear for fingers. 1" diameter holes, space...

Re: litter support bracket 9779000

SUPPORT BRACKETS: Looking at the sprayed outline in the lid of my chest, and based on a mangled portion of one I was able to borrow, I think these could be made from 3/4" wide x 1/4" deep u-channel in mild steel, about 1/8" thick. A 24" piece could be bent 1" in from each e...

Re: Med Chest rebuilt, perhaps one day !

I have found nobody in the USA making a heavy duty chest latch that is close to what was used in WWII on these chests. I have 2 that need some repairs - I hope to find a damaged unit (someday) that I can rob hardware from. The hardware on the 1947 pattern footlocker is close - you might be able to c...

Re: New member

Welcome Mike:

Please tell Chuck that Dave from Denver said "hello". I think you'll find this forum to be a great resource. If you have someone making a nice set of the Chest 2 shelves, maybe they'd make a 2nd set, as I now need another set.

Re: MD 4 Medical Chest

That's the Administrative chest found in larger Aid Stations, In the lid should be (ideally) 2 folding stools. It would contain a typewriter and the needed forms to keep track of patients & supplies. Nice find! The leather handles indicates an early WWII chest type - later ones would have metal ...

Re: WC-54 Stretchers

The early originals were typically silk-screened with a thick ink in WHITE for the circle, then followed with a screen in RED with the caduceus and lettering. I made a silk screen for the lettering and insignia, but cannot find it in my silk-screen carton in the shop. :-( I made the circle with card...

Re: WC-54 Stretchers

I have seen & done post war Civil Defense litters re-marked with the white circle and red lettering to simulate/replicate the original markings. While I think I have disposed of the litters, I probably still have the silk screen for the lettering... It's cheating but might help until you find or...

Medical Carps blankets

I am working with a woolen mill (Faribault Woolen Mill) on another project, and they told me about a project they took on a few years ago at the request of the veteran community: "Can you re-make the blanket that I was issued when I was in the hospital?" Apparently the veterans remembered ...

Re: Mountain Division medic

Very nicely done. Paint job is great and the equipment looks right. An "unofficial" use by the medics in the medical battalion was to use mounted or cav. canteen hangers for the spare (2nd) canteen. The medic kept his personal canteen on one side and the 2nd canteen (on the swivel snap) on...

Re: a dilema

Fred et al Thanks for the comments. With a new medic in my neck of the woods, I think I will focus on making my Bn Aid Station into a loan-able exhibit that others can borrow - this should keep it in use (which is my ultimate goal). I'm going to finish the restoration of the med chests, then will se...

Re: Greeting from Colorado

Thank you both for the warm welcome and a special thanks to you Dave, that is a very generous offer. Your display is actually what inspired me to put together a medic impression. I'm honored - maybe you can take it to the next level. If I can help with anything, please let me know... Actually I nee...
