Garrison Artillery

Heavy Artillery

This is a 40 pounder Heavy Gun. The gunners would have been British as the Indians were not allowed to handle any artillery larger than mountain artillery due to the Indian Mutiny. All of the drivers and hands would have been Punjabis or North West Frontier Natives.
