I made a useable photo from a medical supply catalog and will post it as soon as I figure out how. I am still learning how to get around in this digital electronic age, but not to date myself of course.
By the way, it is not a conventional syringe and needle. These are glass tubes with restricted, cone shaped tips, and rubber bulbs on the other end. Works rather like a huge eyedropper. The 1ounce and larger sizes are common, but the 1/4 ounce size are scarce apparently. I suspect there must a whole case of them hiding out in a warehouse somewhere.

Hi guys,
I will try and find some of the Syringes I have in my collection and post up some photographs for reference this evening.
Thanks,
Ben

Thanks for the link. Hayes always has a lot of neat things. His item # 000998 is almost the exact syringe. The Army didnt buy the one with the back soft rubber tip, but otherwise the same syringe. He doesn't say what size however, so I will call him. Hopefully it is the 1/4 ounce size.
Thanks again for the great tip.

The Glass Bulb Syringe depicted as Item 00998 (EAR/ULCER SYRINGE) is what your looking for. I have a bunch of the prophy bulb syringes in their boxes and they look just like the ear syringe.
