"The War Against Germany and Italy: Mediterranean and Adjacent Areas - Pictorial record".
One picture struck me, that I unfortunately could not figure out how to extract.
Its in: https://history.army.mil/html/books/012 ... b_12-2.pdf
At: p. 126 Sicily
"WOUNDED ARRIVING ON BOARD A TRANSPORT. During the first days
of the invasion the seriously wounded were brought back to transports
equipped with surgical and medical facilities. These ships would then
deliver the wounded to base hospitals in Africa."
That looks like an awfully precarious way to transfer wounded.
It looks like any gust of wind or bigger wave would dump those
on the platform into the sea.
Anyone have more info on this?
