Re: hello from belgium

Re: us medic full gear set up

Hi Wojtek, Thanks for your message. I know it's not that simple - and I would recommend to do this with assistance from another person ... maybe you'll have to practise it a few times before it looks correct and feels comfortable. The information is available in one of our Articles > Point 2. Medica...

Re: Emergency Medical Tag Booklet

Hi Guys, EMT Books: Maybe I wasn't clear enough, so here are some additional elements: The silk/cellophane paper sheet was to protect the 'duplicate' tag from being stained or smeared by the carbon paper. It would normally be removed prior to writing data on the EMT. When I planned to have the EMT b...

Re: Emergency Medical Tag Booklet

Hi Guys, Ben already pointed out the source > our Article http://www.med-dept.com/emt.php I used to make them with help of a professional printer (all sold out), and I think they were the best on the market. The trouble is that most of the basic (vintage) materials were no longer available, so this ...

Re: Medical bag repro items

Hi Nicolas, The snap hooks you mention are very difficult to find, I've never seen any being offered as 'spares'. Because of their special shape, they remain quite unique, and transforming regular snap hooks (as used on haversacks, musettes, and suspenders) proves to be quite difficult, if not impos...

The complete information is all there > www.med-dept.com/ident.php#flags

Re: Flag, Ambulance and Marker, Stock No. 5-F-2150

Bob, I know there's been a bunch of postwar-issue flags on the market for some time ... The cloth is thinner, and some have printed red crosses in lieu of stitched ones. Does this one have any leather tabs (needs 2 to attach to the pole), and is there a cloth label (usually at the lower tab position...

Re: First Aid Kit Armored Forces 9-705-720

Hi Dustin, While I confirm Ben's data, I did some further digging and came up with the following info. There's a cross reference that indicates that Item No. 9705720 was replaced with the new Stock No. 9-705-720 (July 1947 Catalog). The July 1949 Catalog and other docts further refer to a link with ...
