Up for auction is a 1944 WWII U.S. Navy Aluminum folding framed canvas Medic Stretcher. This is a very well engineered and sturdy piece of equipment. When unfolded and locked into position the actual stretcher is 75" long by 20" wide and weighs 18 lbs. The aluminum handles extend further out and were not included in the 75" length. Stenciled on the bottom of the canvas is: a red cross and "M.D. U.S.N." The strap appears to be to strap the stretcher when its folded. The manufactures stencil found on the aluminum hardware is: "__________(the name of the company is difficult to read)...Bed & Spring Co., Contract N1405-45028A, May 18 1944. I got it to fold up tighter in the closed position that the photo a took of it closed. Buyer pays for ground UPS shipping . I ship daily or on next business day.
