Supply Sergeants Check and Record Whole Blood being Shipped to Field Hospitals Somewhere in France

12 June 1944, France - Supply sergeants check and record whole blood being shipped to field hospitals somewhere in France. The Containers also contain dry ice to keep the blood at a proper temperature. The knowledge that men would be cared for if wounded was crucial to morale. The soldier on the left is wearing the standard wool uniform and overseas cap. The man in the centre and on the right are wearing the cotton herringbone twill (HBT) fatigue uniform. The man in the centre also has buttoned over the gas flap of his HBT shirt, while the man on the right is wearing a white cotton T-shirt
