Hi,
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(para. 67, chapter 11) by Lawrence(the University of Adelaide,here):

‘Ah, but think of me, though, at the Gare du Nord: at Calais quay!’

‘But why not? I see other men carried in litter-chairs, who have been wounded in the war. Besides, we’d motor all the way.’


What is litter-chairs please? Is it the same as stretcher for carrying wounded soldiers in battle field?
Thank you in advance
