    I am putting a uniform together and i was wondering what kind of equipment the British medics had during the war, i haven't found any information or pictures about it, so i just thought i should ask here.

    You should get all the necessary information from the Army Medical Services Museum.
    I have enclosed the address. They will also have copies of all the field training manuals etc from WW2 + RAMC Field Packs + Field Ambulance Equipment (MASH units to the Americans)
    AMS Museum
    Hope this helps ...incidentally this is my first posting.

    The netting is actually 2 wire ladder splints. They were bendable into various positions to allow splinting of multiple types of fractures. They are still being used but slowly being replaced by a malleable splint such as the SAM splint.
