Flying Ambulance of Percy

Percy's Ambulance
Percy's ambulance served mainly as a means of transporting surgeons and their instruments close to the engaged elements.

In turn, stretcher-bearers could radiate from such proximity to retrieve the wounded.
Percy's ambulance was light and quick enough to keep up with armies constantly on the move, both in advances and in withdrawals. In essence, Percy's ambulance was a mobile hospital which could carry as many as 10 persons (surgeons and assistants) with equipment, to critical points in a fluid battlefield.
The wounded were then brought to the surgeons, by foot, by a corps of stretcher-bearers.
