Example text

The electric heated casualty bag was developed by the Eighth AF's Central Medical Establishment in 1943. It was made in the form of a roomy, 'mummy'-type sleeping bag with multiple layers of OD fabric in both 12 and 24 volt versions. Wounded fivers were placed in the bag to protect them from high-altitude cold and to prevent shock. It could also be used to transport a wounded man and in event of ditching at sea, would keep him afloat for 15-20 minutes. Four were carried in heavy bombers. This bag was replaced by the standardised 24 volt Q-l electric heated casualty blanket in 1944.

It also had improved retaining strap and inflation systems. , the B-3/B-4 weighed four. Two snap-closed pockets were fitted between the flotation chambers for survival aids. Life jacket dye markers (yellow-green fluorscein dye) were often attached to the life vest's left side by tie cords or rubber cement. These were approximately 5x5 in. packets opened by pull-tabs; there were several versions, all made of the same material as life jackets. Life vest shark deterrent packets held a cake of so-called 'shark chaser'.

Yd. twill also has the benefit of not deteriorating as rapidly with age (service life was seven years), though it is damaged by prolonged exposure to sunlight. Nylon also absorbs little water, dries quickly, and is not damaged by salt water. The extensive demand on America's fledgling nylon industry did have the drawback of requiring the same amount of nylon as 500 pairs of ladies' stockings for one parachute. The hundreds of thousands of parachutes required explains the severe wartime shortage of that commodity, so often commented on in motion pictures.
