American Red Cross Hospital number 1. Paris, France. Brake splint showing extension.

The American Red Cross Hospital in Paris was originally founded as the ‘American Ambulance’ for French Troops, and was offered to the US military in July 1917. As General Pershing initially forbade military hospitals in Paris, the Red Cross Hospital continued to treat French cases.
