The World War II Photo of the Week
for 2 October 2000


AMBULANCES (40 K)

Parked Hood to Door

   The original caption reads:  Parked hood to door at Fort Wayne Ordnance Depot, thousands of Detroit-made ambulances await call to battle stations. To be driven by Medical Corps men, these Army machines will carry wounded to evacuation hospitals from collecting stations behind the front lines. They're painted with not the American Red Cross, but the international symbol adopted by the Geneva Convention. "World's Fastest-Moving Parts Depot" is Fort Wayne's boast. Original Kodachrome by B. Anthony Stewart, from the collection of the WW II Combat Medic Web Site.
