Footnotes

  • HISTORICAL NOTE
    It is not known why, well into the age of breechloading artillery, Britains decided in 1939 to equip their gunners with ramrods. Could it have been that they had found a box of arms with ramrods in the toolroom, left over from the days of sets 148 and 149? The arm with ramrod was next in use for the crew of the American Civil War and Waterloo Guns in the 1950s.
