Medical Personnel & Assault Vest

Wed Nov 07, 2007 23:54

Hello guys,

I recall seeing somewhere a photograph depicting a medic carrying his yoke and bags, whilst wearing an Assault Vest. I was going to add it to our "Photo Galleries" but to my dismay seem to have misplaced the file.
My question is, does anyone registered on the forum have access to, or know where I can find said image?

Any help in locating it really would be appreciated!

Ben :)

I’ve only see the photo of the medic with the bags slung over one shoulder. For a past D – Day event I used that photo to base my impression. From personal experience I can say that the yoke and assault vest don’t work well together. However I’d like to see how this fellow did it. I would always ditch my vest when I’d ride with a patient and throw my bags around my neck like a WWI gasmask.

Sorry I can’t be much help on finding the photo.

I saw a written report on another board on this, but no photo that I recall. I could see some value on assault, but as they didn't hold up well, not agter a few weeks...
