About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

This is a model of a two-wheeled sprung ambulance vehicle, as used by the French medical staff (Service de Santé) during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. This invention revolutionised battlefield medicine, letting wounded French soldiers get quick medical treatment, and was one of the first ambulances ever used.
