Finally sorted myself out with a 15mm minifigs heavy ambulance, exra shade of paint bought (going for the olive rather than the artillery green).

Horse team for the heavy – 2,4 or 6?

Some of the painted examples I've seen have text on them. Any evidence for this?

Thanks in anticipation

Not entirely positive, but seem to recollect the heavy ambulance was pulled by 4 horses.

can't see an image with four horses but I can see pairs in tandem.

It is not going to be 6 I would not have thought and 2 is probably more likely, given the shortage of Nags at this time

I painted up Hat plastic light and heavy ambulances a couple of years ago.

Without any real evidence, apart from weight of vehicle, I added an extra pair of horses to the heavy one. Hat limber teams are 6 horses, but I normally only use 4, so that gave me spares for heavy ambulances. I did the same for baggage wagons.

Many thanks gents 4 seems a likely number. (Coupled with the fact I'm using Naismith horse teams which come in packs of 4 makes everything neat and tidy)
