Re: Normandy WWII US medic unit road-sign

Hello David, Welcome to the MRC Forum ! I hope you'll enjoy your stay with us. Congratulations with the goodie - truly a great item. With regard to your query "Oxford" was the radio callsign of the 45th Armored Medical Battalion. As a matter of fact, all organic units of the 3d Armored Div...

Re: JeepTrailer with red cross markings.

Hi Jeeprobin, Welcome to the Forum ! I hope you'll enjoy your stay ... I've never seen this before. I would think that the trailer might have been on loan for a period, for a static show, an exhibition, or just to illustrate some type of equipment in use by the ARC (there are some figures too in the...

Re: Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Fellow Collectors

Hi Roy, Welcome ! Please join the band and enjoy ... I know the DUI mentioned on page 199 of Stein's book indeed designates it as being the 210th Support Battalion with design officially approved 12 May 1955. Campaign credits and other data match those of the 10th Medical Battalion ! What is strange...

182d General Hospital

Hi Guys, I'm now in the process of finalizing a concise Unit History of the 182d General Hospital, which served in the United Kingdom during WW2. Does anyone have the organization's ACTIVATION DATE ? This probably took place at LaGarde General Hospital, New Orleans, Louisiana, some time in 1943 ... ...

58th General Hospital

Hi Guys, I'm currently editing a concise Unit History of the 58th General Hospital based on vintage reports. Since there are some blanks in the official reports, I'm trying to secure reports covering the period from January 1945 to September 1945. Any additional data are welcome. Needless to add, th...

Re: Greeting from London

Hi Pete,

If you read our Article, you SHOULD know !
Furthermore, 2 pouches were necessary, since their contents were different.
It's as simple as that :)

Cheers,

Medical ID Card, second pattern, laminated

Hi Guys, During my recent visit to Normandy, June 2013, I discovered a Certificate of Identification issued to Military and Civilian Protected Personnel (property of a French collector) with the following references: Date Issued: 24 October 1944 Identification Number: B 385223 This is the FIRST time...

Re: Greeting from London

Hi Matt, Hi Peter, What I meant is that being a member of a MEDICAL DETACHMENT, i.e. attached to an Infantry unit, you are considered to be part of that INFANTRY REGIMENT (and no longer of the 1st Med Bn) ! This implies that as a Private, or an NCO, you would now follow the traditions of the Infantr...

Re: Greeting from London

Hi Guys, Just some additional advice here ... Please consult our pages related to the use of individual and personal First Aid kits. As a Private you should wear the Suspender + 2 Pouches (for contents see > http://www.med-dept.com/personnel_kits.php) I do not agree with the previous statements - yo...

Re: Which duis for a class A?

Hi Speidy,
Since you represent a member of the Medical Detachment, 9th Infantry Regiment, you are to use the DI of subject unit.
Of course, the collar disks would be those of the Medical Department (with Caduceus).

Best,
Alain :wink:

Re: Ambulance Owner

Great pics ! Restoring such a vehicle is no small feat. I purchased a 3/4-ton WC52 in 1981 (late 1943 issue, almost a wreck) and it took me approximately 2 years to restore it (with some help, of course). It always remains a challenge, but so rewarding once it's ready ... (sold it March 1993). All t...

Re: Basic instrument set 932100 now with pictures!

Hi Jean-Claude, Thanks for your input. I have following comments: The 10 inserts may be genuine. I had a similar set, but the small press studs were in white metal (not brass) and they were numbered the same way. I do however have quite a few doubts about the cover - item 9580000. The zipper manufac...

Re: Basic instrument set 932100 now with pictures!

Hi Reinier,
I haven't the faintest idea what the long series (13) of numbers mean ...
No ID, no part number, and why in white ?

Anyone else ?

Best,
Alain :(

Re: Basic instrument set 932100 now with pictures!

Hi Reinier, GREAT item indeed ! Some comments: It looks like there's some confusion with regard to the Item Numbers ... Item 932100 should either read 9321000 OR 93210 (7 OR 5 digits). Item 93205 > Basic Instrument Set, Case, Empty, is a component of Item No. 93200 (Basic Instrument Set, IWIS item) ...
