Description

French wurst wagon.

The wurst wagon was first introduced during the Revolutionary Wars by Baron Francois Percy, and while it could evacuate the lightly wounded the main purpose was to rapidly bring medical personnel and equipment right up to the battlefield itself. It was basically an ammunition caisson with running boards added and the top padded to make a seat on which surgeons and other medical staff could ride. Although it no longer seems to have been used in the last years of the Napoleonic Wars many a wounded soldier must have been glad to see it in an age of woefully inadequate medical care for all armies.
