The 8055, or'Double Nickel' was the legendary Mobile Army Surgical Hospital that inspired one of the best TV shows ever produced; MASH, which told the story of the fictional MASH 4077th unit. This collection was acquired from a local estate sale several years ago; from what I have been able to piece together the photographer was an orthopedic surgeon who traveled to the unit (as so many characters did in the TV show) and documented his brief trip in these slides. Aside from an exposure issue on a slide in the third photo (bottom right), all slides are in excellent vintage condition; most also have captions hand written on the slide boarder providing extra detail about each photograph. The item "50 Korean War 1952 35mm Slide LOT REAL 4077 MASH 8055th Unit O. Artillery" is in sale since Wednesday, January 25, 2017.
