Re: Myths about WWII Medicine, Medics, etc

your evidence shows that neither medic carried a firearm into combat, I am sure that individual medic's aquired a 1911 but again they were the exeption and not the rule. If the order was given how many of the200 officers and men of the 307th were court marshalled for disobaying that order!

Re: Nurses uniform in General Hospital

Not sure I can copy it , the uniform regs are part of a collection of FM's in a period binder that runs to several hundered pages of army regs from 1921-1943. I think it must have belonged to a career army nurse ( Chief Nurse )as it cover marriage, transportation sick reports etc. Are you going to M...
