BATTLE OF NORMANDY

NAVY/MARINES

Navy Corpsman are highly skilled  and are widely considered some of the best front line medics in the US military service.

During World War I, hospital corpsmen served throughout the fleet, earning particular distinction on the Western Front with the Marine Corps. A total of 684 personal awards were awarded to hospital corpsmen in the war, including 2 Medals of Honor, 55 Navy Crosses, and 237 Silver Stars.

In World War II, hospital corpsmen hit the beach with Marines in every battle in the Pacific. Joe Rosenthal’s iconic photo of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima, captured during that battle’s early days, depicts Pharmacist’s Mate Second Class John Bradley among the group of Marines on Mt. Suribachi that day.

They also served on thousands of ships and submarines. Notably, three unassisted emergency appendectomies were performed by hospital corpsmen serving undersea and beyond hope of medical evacuation.

The Hospital Corps has the distinction of being the only corps in the U.S. Navy to be singled out in a famous speech by Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal after the conclusion of the war.

Hospital Corpsmen can further specialize, Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman, or SARC. They are usually found in both the FMF Recon and Marine Division Recon and MARSOC units. They are trained and skilled in combat, including combatant swimming, opened/closed circuit scuba diving, military free-fall and amphibious operations.

ARMY

Combat medics (also known simply as medics) are trained military personnel who are responsible for providing first aid and front line trauma care on the battlefield. They are also responsible for providing continuing medical care in the absence of a readily available physician, including care for disease and battle injury. Combat medics are normally co-located with the combat troops they serve.

USAF medics have frequently served attached to US Army units in recent conflicts. Though all combat medical personnel are universally referred to as “medic”, within different branches of the US military, the skill level, quality of training and scope of work performed by medics varies from branch to branch. Army medics are mainly first aid and initial combat care; their mission is to get a wounded soldier treated enough to survive transportation away from a combat area and to a proper medical facility as quickly as possible.

VIETNAM

Thomas Bennett was a conscientious objector who received the medal for his actions as a medic. The first medal of the war was presented to Roger Donlon for rescuing and administering first aid to several wounded soldiers and leading a group against an enemy force.

Battle Of The Bulge

The M1C helmet, issued to PARATROOPERS, was a variant of the U.S. Army M1 helmet used in WWII that replaced the M2 helmet. The most important change was the bails (chinstrap hinges). The M2 had fixed, spot welded solid “D” bales [like a “D” on it’s side] so named for their shape. It was found that when sat on or dropped, these bails would snap off. The solution was the implementation of the swivel bail, which could move around and so was less susceptible to breaking.

Up until January 23, 1948 and Army regulation AR 850-5 authorizing red cross markings on helmets, individual military medical units designed their own helmet markings.

 

100th.jpg (15043 bytes)

The above helmet is a WWII version with the swivel-bale attachment for the khaki chinstraps used by U.S. AIRBORNE TROOPS with a red cross configuration painted on the helmet shell. Some medics did not want the large bright white circles with red crosses on front sides and top of helmet due to the fact both the German and Japaese would target them and the large white and red made their job easier.

HELBROS WWII HISTORY
helbros2.jpg (45398 bytes)

In 1913, when only the relatively well-to-do could afford a timepiece, Helbros was created by the Helbein Brothers. The middle class Swiss German watchmakers goal was to manufacture quality timepieces affordable to the working public. Throughout the 20’s and 30’s, Helbros became a household name and by the 40’s and WWII,  Helbros was supplying watches to American Forces and a major promoter of the War Bond efforts of the United States.

**********************************

This is an extract from  a book about Helbros and money channeling in WW2:

helbros-spy.jpg (29353 bytes)

***********************************************************

Quick as a Flash was a 30-minute radio quiz program which featured drama segments with guest actors from radio detective shows.

Created by director Richard Lewis and emcee Ken Roberts, the program debuted over the Mutual Network on Sunday, July 16, 1944. Sponsored by the Helbros Watch Company, the show was produced by Lewis and Bernard J. Prockter with scripts by Gene Wang. Music was by Ray Bloch and the Helbros Orchestra.Six contestants from the studio audience competed for cash and other prizes. Clues were presented in the form of dramatic sketches covering such subjects as current events, movies, books and historical situations. With a buzzer, a contestant could interrupt at any time to submit an answer.

THE US GOVERNMENT BEGAN ISSUING DUST GOGGLES IN 1943 FOR PARATROOPERS. THEY WERE NOT DESIGNED TO BE WORN WHILE JUMPING, RATHER FOR TRANSPORTATION AS PROTECTION AGAINST DUST. I LUCKED OUT WITH TWO PAIRS, ONE ISSUED IN 1943, AND THIS SET THAT IS RARE. IT WAS ISSUED FOR THE NORMANDY SUMMER INVASION IN 1944. THESE ARE THE TINTED VERSION FOR SUMMER WEAR.
