What does this ambulance stencil mean?

From the picture archives at

This is an enlargement of an Ambulance attached to the 15th Air Force 97th Bomb Group stationed at Amendola, Italy. Picture was taken 2 April 1945. (Plane is from the 340th Bomb Squadron)

Does anyone know what the graphic of a circle over 2 lines means?

"put the fat guy on two litters"?

Could it be a unit shipping marking - like the graphic used to keep unit baggage together in transit?
