Does anyone know what color the British artillery carriages were painted? Were the barrels bronze or black?

In the Crimea, the carriages would still have been gray with black iron-work. Iron barrels (rifles) would have been black, bronze barrels would have been polished.

I second rmaker's statement for what it's worth :)
