Royce, I figured I wasn't the first to see these but must have missed them here the first time around. These old images are always one of my favorite things about this forum.

This would be one of the few ways an injured soldier got a worse ride quality than a model T.

It seems many groups raised funds to buy an ambulance to send to the war. Often with a logo on the side.

Hey Eric,
"Ambulance to the Front" is a great book about the author's grandfather's experience driving ambulances in WWI. There is a lot of background and personal information as well as history of his training and a great story about what happened when he returned to France in the 70s (If I recall correctly, I can not find my copy at this time) Just under 200 copies were printed, and if you want one, you best get it soon. You can get them from the author or through Amazon.
It should be noted that Walt Disney was not an ambulance driver in WWI, he was a Red Cross worker after the war, but the status of having been an ambulance driver was great, and Walt was not above cashing in on it.

A wonderful (and hopefully growing) collection of special photographs.
Thanks to all that posted some (and I don't care if some had been posted before, anything to help flush out more).
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

If you want a project, just blow this up to desired size and make your own WWI ambulance.

WWI ambulance pictures always make me think of my uncle who drove an ambulance "over there". His army excursion to France cured him of ever wanting to travel again.

How bout a USMC poem?

This poem entitled "Elizabeth Ford" is from Catlin's "with the help of God and a few Marines..." these are just the fisrt few stanzas...My thanks to Patrick Mooney for sharing!



We carried her over the sea, we did.
And taught her to hep, hep, hep
A cute little jinny, all noisy and tinny.
But full of Americap pep.

Recruited into the Corps she was
She came of her own accord.
We flew at her spanker the globe and the anchor
And named her Elizabeth Ford.

Cute little 'Lizabeth, dear little 'Lizaheth,
Bonnie Elizabeth Ford!

She was short and squat, but her nose was sot
For the Hindenburg lineó Lord!
She hated a Hun like a son-of-a-gun^
The Kaiser she plumb abhorred.
Did chunky Elizabeth, hunky Elizabeth
Spunky Elizabeth Ford.

We took her along on our hikes, we did.
And a wonderful boat was she.
She'd carry physicians, food or munitions.
Generals, water, or tea.
She could climb a bank like a first-rate tank
And deliver the goods aboard
When we touch our steel Kellies to " Semper Fidelis,"
Remember Elizabeth Ford.

'Cute little *Lizabeth, dear little 'Lizabeth,
Bonnie Elizabeth Ford.

Beth
