Surgeon-General J. A. Woofryes, M.D., C.B., C.M.G., Experiences Principal Medical Officer of the Force in the Zulu War, 1877, . e J
thus writes :

" The question of ambulances caused some anxiety. In the Cape Colony campaign the ordinary ox wagons were used, fitted with a framework called a cartel, having springs, and slung inside the body of the wagon. A number of these cartels had been forwarded to Natal, but it was found that the wagons of this colony were of a different pattern, and were not sufficiently wide to receive them. As ambulances* were required without delay, travelling wagons with springs, such as are used by the better class of colonists, were brought up and converted into ambulances, but only a few of them could be obtained. Therefore, five store wagons with springs were procured from the Ordnance Department, and these were adapted to the purpose. As the war assumed greater proportions, however, more ambulances were required, and it was
only after some difficulty that a tradesman could be found who engaged to complete and hand over one every fortnight. He constructed 12, which proved to be most serviceable. They were ordinary wagons of the country, each having on its floor a platform resting on six stout carriage springs, three on either side, leaving a space of some 18 inches between the floor and the platform. On the platform behind were arranged three hospital stretchers abreast for lying-down patients, and in front a double row of seats, back to back, for fourteen patients sitting up. A double tent covered the whole length of the wagon, and there was ample circulation of air through the open sides, while canvas curtains excluded the rain. The men's kits and rifles, with tents for use on the road, and cooking utensils, were carried in the space between the two floors. The length of the vehicle made its motion easier over the rough roads, and the jolting was counteracted by the springs most satisfactorily." (A.M.D. Reports, 1879.)
