Predictive texting "naked in the wood"? What sort of texts have you been sending?

 

Thanks. That's really helpful. I will have another look at the handles.

It could be far earlier than WW2. Stretcher design changed little in a 100 years.

 

This looks like Ambulance Stretcher Mk II & that pre-dates RAMC

 

I used to have one with that browny canvas & that had a date stencilled on the canvas it was faded but I think it was 1917.

We used to have these army surplus WWII stretchers in the cadets in the 70's and the local St Johns used to have them too

I bought a load of these once. The date was always stamped on the wood, near the hinge.

Bought two of these about 4 months ago must check for any dates, not looked before.

All the relatively modern ones (from WW2 on) I've seen have green canvas.

 

It seems to be a characteristic of early ones that they had "canvas, which is tanned" this is quoted in manuals:

 

MSC 1885

RAMC 1899, 1908, 1911, 1925

I am allways surprised you seem to have the correct manual for most items.

But then again I shouldn't seeing you have so many.

The biggest problem is to actually find where I put the book that the database tells me I have got :-D
