collectively as the regimental medical train. These supplies. are adequate for the essential treatment of the command for approximately one day of com- bat.
b. The regimental surgeon is responsible for the medical supply of the detachment. Routine medical supply is effected by requisition on the division medical supply officer through the regimental sup- ply officer. During combat the regimental surgeon or battalion surgeons may make informal requests to the division medical unit (collecting company) in direct support. This unit will send supplies forward by litter bearers or ambulance. Items such as litters, blankets, and splints, which accompany evacuated casualties to the rear, are replaced automatically. When the ambulances or bearers from the division unit return to the regiment, they bring with them items of equipment corresponding to the ones taken out on the previous trip. For details of medical sup- ply, see FM 8-10.
