Ambulance Knights

Rings, sticks, First-aid equipment

In this game a boy takes the place of a horse, and another one rides on his back. Each rider is labeled with the name of an injury, and holds a stick in his hand. Rings allowing one for each pair of boys are hung at a certain distance in such a manner that they can be easily dislodged by the sticks, and this is the object of the game, the boys carrying the riders past the rings at a run. When a rider succeeds in getting the ring upon his stick, the one who is carrying him has to reach a given point, put the rider down, examine his label, and treat him for his injury. The one who does this in the quickest and most correct style wins. Should the rider fail to dislodge the ring at the first attempt, they may go back to the starting place and try again.
