WWII Medical pictures

Tue May 01, 2007 20:24

In looking for something else totally unrelated I stumbled across this site that has some interesting WWII med pics.

http://digitallibrary.smu.edu/cul/gir/ww2/mcsc/italy/pages/mcs023it.htm

(also hit the 2 links at the bottom)

Contrary to the statement with the picture this is an American Truck. It is a GMC 3 ton AFKX 352...

Ambulance shots. This is the first "In_theater" picture I have seen with Geneva Crosses on the front doors. Very non-official.
