Hi all,

Just been reading through some 6 Commando documents relating to the RAMC attached to the Commando's (For a book I am writing). Its mentions at the very bottom of this document (excuse typing as it is badly printed).

Greeno, Grenco or Groono Carrier to be carried at the Troop Commanders Disgression.... What is one? I am thinking some for of stretcher maybe?

I only ask as I was wondering if it may be a Commando specific item?

Cheers

It may be the original name for what we call 'Everest Carriers'?

Bearing in mind, this type of carrier was used (along with modified versions for oxygen bottles) in the famous accent of Everest in 1953, which is where I'm presuming the nick-name 'Everest Carrier' came from, would make it a post-ww2 name. Perhaps Greeno/Grenco/etc.. was the original pre-Everest-accent designers/makers name?
