1951 Photo Shows Casualty Evac Demonstration on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

What I like best about these images is that the eBay seller takes the time to include the names of the soldiers. You never know when some offspring will search and find the photo and write in the comments, “Hey, that’s my [insert relative affiliation]”.

Sometimes the large army ambulance cannot be brought in close enough for litter bearers to load a casualty right in the field. In that case, a jeep is used to evacuate the patient.
