A C-46 evacuating from Saipan (bottom) and an armored ambulance that I know nothing about, but it looks tough. (I think it is U.S., but it also has a British look to me).

The Armored ambulance is a WWII Canadian Chevrolet C15TA,quite a rare beast!.

Another Civil War view of an ambulance driver with his team of horses. I also wanted to add that the American Civil War was the first war where a strategic method was devised for gathering the wounded. Military medicine made leaps and bounds during this war, in many different ways.

Sweet, I am doing the same, but have not gotten that far yet, what is he using for plans? Did he find a source of the correct thickness of "cardboard" for the body?

Here are some pics of my "Meat Wagon". It's a 1985 M1010. It is pretty much all original. I do have all of the original BII for it as well as the red cross panels.

That's what I love about USMF, there is always someone who can identify the most obscure items!
Thanks.

While looking for information on San DIego during WWI, I ran across this photo taken around 1917 in Balboa Park. The Navy established a hospital at the park around this time.

I arrived home last weekend from the spring Tower Park event with some nice used 9.00 x 16 NTM NDT's.  The tires are already mounted on combat wheels, and I've wanted a set for my WC54 for some time.  The tires that were on it were mud and snow tires and they are much smaller in circumference compared to NDT's.  The NTM NDT's are 111 inches in circumference whereas the mud and show tires are 99 inches in circumference.  Hopefully, the engine won't be as taxed cruising down the highway now, and I think it really has that authentic look:

Thanks for looking, Zeph

Hi RAZGY, absolutely great looking display(s) and beautiful KD64 ambulance.  I see you have a half-ton wheel on your KD.  With the addition of my NDT's I finally have all four combat wheels on my WC54.

 

Thanks for posting.  It's great to see photos of other member's WWII era vehicles and displays.  I would like to work toward a halfway decent display someday..

 

Zeph
