Photo #: NH 80005
Poster from the "What the Navy is Doing" series, published by the Navy Recruiting Bureau, New York, circa 1918.
It depicts USS Mercy (ID # 1305, later AH-4) and scenes aboard a Navy hospital ship, among them surgeons at work, removal of a metal fragment from a Sailor's eye, X-ray examination, use of a Stokes stretcher for hoisting a patient on board, patients in their bunks, and convalescents in the ship's solarium. Some or all of these scenes may have been taken on board Mercy.
