British light 6 pounder?

Postby pbrowne » May 3rd, 2017, 8:20 am

I have come across a nice scale reconstruction of what looks like a British light 6 pounder and limber. I believe the light 6 pounder was used in the American revolutionary war up to Waterloo. Comments appreciated!

A warm welcome to the forum. Handsome gun.
Good pictures. Where were they taken?
