RALPH MORSE                                Life January 29th 1945 George Lott, Casualty

Ralph Morse documents the 4500 mile journey of a wounded soldier, from the battlefield to a veterans hospital in the United States. George Lott (22) is a medic attached to the 137th Regiment, 35th Division, Third Army. At 11:30 on Nov 22nd 1944 he was severely wounded by a mortar round as he tried to reach an injured soldier at Diffenbach Les Hellimer. He made it back to his own Battalion aid post. He is taken to the CCS, then on to the evacuation hospital at Nancy. He is then flown to England to the 7th General Hospital, and he is eventually shipped via Paris to a hospital in New York. The photo essay covered a 30 day period and Morse administered the penicillin himself as the doctors battled to save George's arm. The follow up story in 1947 found George stll in hospital and eventually having his arm amputated.
