3rd Armored

Fri Dec 05, 2014 18:36

The lads in the group are portraying 3rd Armored, Can anyone advise what field hospital could be linked to the 3rd Armored. Myself and my mum have been collecting medical equipment for over a year now and have a nice display. So would be nice to link in with the 3rd armored somehow. Many thanks

Well the US Medical system didn't assign hospital units to Divisions but to support geographical areas usually assigned to Corps for administration. 3AD had the 45th Armored Medical Battalion as an integral medical unit but the Hospital units that would support them came from VII Corps or 1st Army.

Here is a list of VII Corps medical units. Remember that most contact with 3AD units would be through the Collecting Companies and Ambulance Companies.
