Belgian 44-40 revolver bring back!

Private First Class Daniel Ely of Findley Ohio was born on April 13, 1913. He served in the 63rd Division 255th Infantry Regiment “F” Company Medical Detachment. His battles and campaigns include Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe.
During WW2 Medical Detachments were “attached” to each Infantry Regiment. Their mission was to help conserve the strength of the Regiment by taking the necessary preventive and sanitary measures, and provide appropriate medical and dental treatment.
Officers and Enlisted Men were adequately trained in medical and other skills. EM were not only trained for different duties such as: Dental – Medical – Sanitary and Surgical Technicians, but also as Record Clerks, Litter Bearers, Podiatrists, and Light Truck Drivers.
Detachments were responsible for first echelon medical service in combat situations, including emergency medical treatment in the field, removal of battle casualties, and establishment of Aid Stations for the reception, triage, temporary care, and treatment of casualties.
In situations other than combat, the Medical Detachment provided basic medical care by operating one or more Dispensaries for emergency treatment and care of the Regiment’s sick and injured. In addition, it was responsible for routine duties, proper sanitation, physical examination, first aid, personal hygiene, and the clerical work necessary for proper administration of the Detachment.
On the march, whether in combat or not, the Detachment always rendered emergency medical treatment. Three Company Aidmen accompanied each Rifle Company; that is one for each Platoon. Each Battalion Section, less the Company Aidmen and the Battalion Surgeon, immediately followed the Infantry Battalion it supported. Battalion Surgeons rode with their organization commanders or their immediate Staff. One Ambulance from the Collecting Company (the Infantry Division’s organic Medical Battalion), responsible for second echelon care, was attached to each Battalion Medical Section for the duration of the march. When March casualties occurred, they were either treated by a Company Aidman, and then rejoined their units, or were put in an Ambulance, or kept under observation. All casualties (sick, injured, or disabled personnel) separated from their organization, were to be tagged by the Medical Officer (arms and individual equipment, were to remain with the casualty). In order to care for any casualties, Collecting Posts were often established along the road by the Collecting Companies. (Wikipedia).

Very unusual, especially with the bring back documentation. That one is super cool!

After following your posts, I have this nagging feeling that I've got to step up my collecting game.

Thanks Doctor. I'm glad I bought most of mine when the prices were lower! The bring back collecting bug is really catching on and the prices and interest is growing.
