Hi all I am looking at getting some more medical kit next year and needed to know how much these items usually go for so I do not get ripped off or can tell if the item is a bargain if you know what I mean.

US army stretcher

Emergency Medical Tags book (dosent have to be original)

A large Medical flag (neutrality) that was usually displayed in aid stations (again probably dont want original)

Any US instruments

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated guys as I am going to Chatham Militaria fair this sunday and will be looking for more medical items this advice will help guys.


Regards Tay :D

Hi Tay

Are you a medic in your group mate!

Do you want to be a medic in a group!

Lee

Hi Lee I am not yet a medic officially in the group I am in just a rifleman.Although I do have a small collection of medical kit and want to over the course of the next couple of years extend that collection to be able to eventually put on a small evac/aid station as part of a display.I would also like to yes be a medic as an impression of mine hopefully starting that next year some time.Lee I have seen your groups displays of aid stations etc and they are literally amazing.I was wondering if you had any advice regarding where the items that I am looking for can be picked up and fair prices to be paid for them.


Regards Tay

went to chatham today bought a supposedly US original bath type thing.It is built like a troph with the same style of wood supporting it as the wooden camp beds of the time.Was wondering if anyone had any info on when and where they were used who were they issued to and what price they usually go for.Also if anyone has any pictures of them that would also be nice to see them in use.

Thanks Tay :D
