Hello

I'm not sure. IMO there were officially 3 known models still in use within the army at the beginning of the war.

The Heereskrankentrage 1913, The Heereskrankentrage 1934 (zusammenlegbare = but not folded!) and the "Hälftengleiche Feldtrage mit 2 gurten" ( starting from 1938? - like the ones like below, which were foldable).

IMO, your example, if german, look like a model in between the 34 and the final model "Hälftengleiche Feldtrage". I've seen more models like yours which were not officially described in Dienstvorschriften.

Maybe your's is a para-military issue stretcher, used by DRK or another organistation. Althought the markings look typical german military.

I'll do some more research, as I'm off to work now.

Cheers

Jan

Jan,

Since your one of the most knowledgeable members on medical equipment, I though I'd get your opinion on this stretcher. I got in at a flea market in Germany many years ago. I don't even know if its German, which is why it just sits in my garage. There are no markings I can find.Here are a few pics.Any assistance would be appreciated.WR Jim

Difficult to answer Jim...I have never seen this configuration in wartime dienstvorschriften or wartime pictures.
As no markings are found, and based on the rather poor construction, it could be a locally made one. One should remember that improvisation when it came to transport of wounded/sick comrades was endless.

Post-war, or another nationality...Could even be non-military.

I'm sorry that I can't be of more help at this moment, maybe other members can fill in?

I have several pictures of stretchers in use, will do some study on them and get back to you if I've found somthing.

Cheers

Jan

Hello all

I don't know what nation this shown (first) example is - but it looks as those I had to use in the Swiss Army in the 1980-90. The only difference is, that our handles were in some sort of plastic an could be slides inside the tubes, to make it even smaller, but the system itself was exactly the same (besides: stable when opened correctly)

My opinion is: Swiss WW II
