1778-79 English 9-Pounder carriage.

Post by le Spahi »

Hello,

I am looking for the detailed plan of the carriage of an English 9-pounder iron gun, 7 feet long.
I consulted several books but I did not find a detailed plan.

For the moment, I could not find Volume II (1997) of Adrian Caruana's books in a library: The History of English Sea Ordnance. Do you know if this book contains this type of plan?

Thanks for your precisions.
