German Medical Staff in North African Campaign.

Here is interesting photograph of a German Medic in full gear assisting British Army medical personnel with stretcher bearing. Nice display of pouches and medical sleeve patch.  Barron

Not a common sight - great to see the patch in use.

Re: German Medical Staff in North African Campaign.

Great photo Barron smile

From what I've seen the medical specialist badge seems to be one of the few "trade" badges worn
on some tropical Heer tunics in Africa (right forearm). 

You seem to see a lot more use of the Sonderverband 288 and Gebirgsjäger badges (worn on the upper right
sleeve) by units entitled to wear these emblems.

Regards Markus.

Re: German Medical Staff in North African Campaign.

Thank you guys for the interesting comments! Medical items have always been one of my favorite subjects and this was sure the first photo of this quality that I had seen! I have several of the brown medical pouches, but seen them in Africa until this shot smile   Barron

Re: German Medical Staff in North African Campaign.

Since I posted this photo I have been inspired to post some of the medical items on the tropical equipment heading as I felt it would be more appropriate?! Hope you will enjoy!  smile   Barron
