Folks, these photos are looking great! Please keep them coming! Remember, all vehicles count here. So if you have photos of aircraft, ships, etc. used to transport the wounded or sick, please post!

Here is an ambulance train that was built during WWI for the American Army by the British for use in France.

U. S. Navy Ambulance Boat No. 1 (later YH-1), 1919-1939.

U. S. Navy Ambulance Boat No. 1, a 54-ton, 65-foot wooden-hulled craft propelled by a four-cylinder gasoline engine, was built at the Mare Island Navy Yard, California. In November 1918 the Navy Department had placed an order with Mare Island for ten additional 54-ton motor tugs (six others had been ordered earlier in 1918 from Mare Island and Pearl Harbor), but soon decided to complete three of the later hulls, Motor Tugs Nos. 97, 100, and 101 as Ambulance Boats Nos. 1-3 respectively. This change took effect before the launching of the first unit, Ambulance Boat No. 1 (ex-Motor Tug No. 97) on 24 July 1919. The ambulance boats received their own hull type symbol, YH, when the Navy implemented its standard hull classification system in July 1920. Ambulance Boat No. 1 (later YH-1) entered service on 18 August 1919 and served for her entire career in the San Francisco Bay area (her two sisters were both transferred to Norfolk, Virginia upon completion). She was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register in December 1938 and sold in March 1939.

This is out of the Dec 1944 issue of National Geographic. It was taken in my hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Sorry about the poor quality, but it is a photocopy of the photo. If anyone has the Dec '44 issue, please feel free to scan and post the image!

I find the 2nd picture weird. It happens to be a first production WC 9. The weird thing about it is on the rear doors the pieces of wood on the bottom. Through all my research from owning the 2 following WC 9 productions and also the WC 18 weren't suppose to have this update but WC 27s and WC 54s only had them
