Very nicely done. We in the USA are jealous of the medical goodies you have! Excellent display and great to see the children interested. Good to see the sterilizers, cocoa unit, etc. I like the tent liner to brighten up the inside of the tent.

Thank You David, most of the stuff is from my collection and this event was the best I've ever had. Kids were great and learned and saw a lot of the other side of War, I even made a local Dutch paper with my school story(http://lh3.ggpht.com/_zn_pbUjZhR0/SrzL1PUWh2I/AAAAAAAAA3c/1bCubsvL1N4/Brabands-Dagblad_19-09-09_low-res.jpg)

Nice detail, the tentliner is made of a original 1943 medical cargo parachutte used on the Dropzone near Son :wink:

A well-presented display! Some of the tentage, the Lyster bag, the collapsible buckets, and a number of miscellaneous pieces of equipment were still in use -- not substantially changed -- when I was a young soldier back in the early 1980s, so occasionally a piece of post-war production kit can still be used authentically.

My compliments on the moulage as well. It lends authenticity, yet still avoids the extent which could alarm or shock the more "impressionable" audiences. You've clearly considered that matter!
