WWII US ARMY MASH UNIT COMPLETE WWII MASH unit – completely functional Hospital unit (1000’s of items as 1 lot). This unit is one of the most complete WWII Units known to exist. In 1943 the concept of moving a full surgical unit to a forward area “collecting station” was instituted. Wounded first went to a Battalion Aid Station and if necessary were transferred to a collecting station a few miles back from the front line. There, triage was carried out and troops were treated and returned to the front line or sent to the rear to division hospitals or medical centers. Unfortunately there were those casualties that were too unstable to move. Hence, a full surgical unit MASH was attached to the collecting station to stabilize these troops too critical to move. In WWII the unit was called a “Mobile Auxiliary Surgical Hospital”. In Korea, the name was changed to “Mobile Army Surgical Hospital” or “M.A.S.H. Unit”, as we know it now.
