The Field Guns

The Volunteer Artillery were issued initially with two 12 Pdr Armstrong-Whitworth breech-loading field guns and then latter with two 9 Pdr rifled muzzle-loading guns

Equipment and Contents of the Gun/Limber and Ammunition Wagon

As taken from the Artillerists Manual by Major FA Griffiths RA dated 1854

These notes described the contents of  the Limber and Ammunition Wagon for the 9 Pdr field gun which was used by Volunteer Units in WA. The completeness of this kit is always open for debate when dealling with a Volunteer Unit.
