Sleds were especially useful for evacuating the wounded after a battle. When the sleds were unavailable another method which was commonly used by the Rangers and was inspired by an Indian technique, was the use of a “tumpline”.

The Indian method was to carry the injured man by piggy-back by having him sit on a pack or blanket tied with a tumpline. The wide part of the line lying across the carrier’s forehead. The Iroquois were known to carry their wounded in this manner “hundreds of leagues”.

Limited Edition of 500 sets.
