        Hi Jan,

        Getting back on the Sanitätskasten issue ...

        I have part of the manual you mentioned in a Xerox form.

        I have here Der Dienst des deutschen Wehrmachtsapothekers dated 1942 ... 366 pages of medical information

        It has a rather detailed list of all possible Sanitätsausrüstungen. On page 257 it says:
        Neben den zusammensetzbaren Kastenhälften und den Tragkörben wie bei der Gebirgstruppen-Sanitätsausrüstung finden sich als neue Behältnisse die Einheitskästen der Gebirgs-Sanitätskompanie für Lastkraftwagenverlastung. Dies sind Rolladenkästen von 50 cm Höhe, 75 cm Breite und 42,5 cm Tiefe, die sich zu Schranken zusammensetzen lassen und eine bequeme Entname während der Verlastung ermöglichen.

        I also need to find H.Dv. 208/12 .... this seems also to deal with the Gebirgssanitätskasten ...

        Still much, much to learn ...

          Hi Patrick,

          Regarding your question on the unidentified Tragesattel ... I do not believe the one you showed and the one in the (nice ) medical picture are the same model. I have found some major differences as can be seen in my comparishment picture.

          Could you provide us with some additional pictures of the webbing belts that are woven into the sides of the first Tragesattel you showed? I'm interested in what kind of straps these are.

          MfG,
          Bart

            Servus Bart,

            Thanks for the comparison picture. It may help if I took some photos of the back end of the sattle since the one posted is the front end. The thrid horizontal slat is folded up in the wartime photo...you can see that it is hinged in my photo.

            I'll get some more photos of the Tragesattel 23 posted later. I'm still uploading them to a photo hoster.

            As to the Bundeswehr photos that I posted, I beleive they are from the early 1960's. I have some more current BW Mulis and packsattle photos. I took a whole bunch back in 1990 when I went to the 1st Geb.Div.'s 75th anniversary open house in Mittenwald.

            Muli vor!

              Grüß Di' Sani Jan,

              Here are some photos of the packsaddle, Geb.San.Kasten, and Gefechtskasten that I took at the Gebirgsjäger museum in Sothofen. They have a #3 and #12 Geb.San.Kasten in Dunkelgelb, as well as a nicely marked Geb.Gef.Kasten.

                Thanks Bart and Patrick for your help about the Gebirgs-Sanitätskasten and additional pictures.

                My knowledge on GJ medical items is very limited and I based my observation on the booklet I already mentionned.

                Like I thought it was, you only had 4 boxes which were listed as 'Gebirgs-Sanitätskasten :

                1 - Arztliche Gerät / Ampullen
                2 - Watte / Tabletten
                3- Binden / Flussigkeiten
                4 - Mull / Salben

                I honestly didn't know that there were more then 4 of these types available. Interesting about the #12 GJ-Sanitätskasten in dunkelgelb.

                Like you said Bart, that H.Dv. 208/12 will probably reveal more about these...I'll definatly look out for an example!

                There isn't much reference material available so we need to get our information out of wartime manuals and Dv's.

                Cheers

                    Here are some more detail photos of my Tragsattel 23. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the manual, so I don't know the offical nomenclature for all the parts....maybe you could send me a copy?

                              It amazes me how preserved the wood is, they would make useful parts for a restoration project.
                              Did you ever pick the horse drawn cart up, that you showed on a previous thread?
