Here are some internet films aboud The Medical Department
Wounded are carried to trucks-which take them to the beachhead-where
they are loaded onto Higgins boats and then ferried out to waiting
PBY that will take them to a rear area field hospital, late 1943,
Wounded are given plasma at a jungle aid station-under the trees
of a coconut tree plantation, 1943. Nice detail of how the plasma
bottles are prepared-and then used...Medic/Corpsman wets wounded
mans lips with damp cloth-as water is like gold and in short supply.
Wounded Marines are ferried via ambulance jeeps through the jungle
to a rear area Naval field hospital. Wounded are prepared for surgery,
insturments are sterilized and then men are operated on. Nice detail
of plasma bottles.
