Thought you folks might enjoy seeing this ambulance.  Restored WC-54 marked for the 90th Bomb Group.  However, you'll notice a few oddities with the markings.  This ambulance sits outside a nearby Veterinary hospital and if you look  closely  you'll notice a Doberman in the star on the door.  The ambulance is licensed and I assume it is used in local parades.

Salvage Sailor, Thank you for the additions!  I have seen very few medical related photos from pre- and inter-war Hawaii.

White bandanas might also be "neutral" or "umpire" in a red vs. blue wargame. It would make sense to have the medics available to either side in case of an accident.

That is a great photo showing the vehicle, a mounted horseman and the personal gear.

Two images from Ft. Sam Houston in the late '30's or early '40's.  The first image features my great-uncle who enlisted in 1937.  The second image is of a buddy of his.  They were part of the 2nd Infantry Division, 15th Field Artillery, Medical Detachment.  My great-uncle is the one who got me started collecting as he gave me a lot of his stuff plus some TR bring backs.  He served overseas during the War as a combat medic in the 103rd ID.

Not sure what the model is of these vehicles.

Ambulances most likely from C Company, 8th Medical Bn., 8th Infantry Division, 1982 or 1983, somewhere in Germany.

 

You will notice how the red cross markings stand out from the woods and the camouflage nets.  From what I understood, the Medical company had a full set of subdued crosses in storage that could be immediately mounted if the balloon had gone up (if the war had started.)

 

The white X indicates the vehicle is "neutral" in a red vs. blue war game.  Medical assets were typically used in this fashion to assist either side if needed.  We also did not want medical vehicles delayed due to overzealous game play (MP's at checkpoints, for example).

Ambulance Company No. 9 circa 1913, Schofield Barracks, T.H.

 

This photo can not have been taken before 1917, the cars are the newer model of Ford Ts that had the shroud over the radiator.  The bodies are some of the earliest used on the Model T and were built by the Babcock company.

Aloha Gus,

 

I've been rechecking the ID on that photo for quite a while now as I also suspected that it was not circa 1913 but a little later.  I've yet to find a direct reference to "Ambulance Co. No. 9" at Schofield Barracks, only this reference to the unit at Fort Shafter from the Hawaiian Department organization documents (1911-1914)

 

"A provisional ambulance company existed at Ft. Shafter, T.H. from March to May of 1913."

 

There was also a medical unit at the Hawaiian Department Hospital, T.H. but no specific details.

 

I also believe that Company No. 9 is circa 1917-1918, not 1913, and I thank you for the second opinion and the ID on the Model T's.
