Corpsmen carried a medic bag with medicine, morphine, bandages, scissors. The medic were issued 2 bags that were attached to suspenders and yoke. This suspenders were not like that worn by the infantry. A single bag could be worn using a simple shoulder strap. ALso, the bag had a row of eyelets along the lower 1/3. This allowed the bag to be shortened in height by lacing up the bottom.
