"Wellington and his gunners,"
Nick Lipscombe, lecture. National Army Museum,
8th September,2015.

A brief treatment of a complex subject of which I was unaware. Perhaps others were aware of both subject and the lecture itself.

His book is excellent.

Agree. His Peninsular War Atlas is also excellent.

Nick Lipscombe is also an excellent author and historian.

One aspect of the Royal Artillery, et al, during the period is that they needed to be augmented by what became the excellent Portuguese artillery in the Peninsula. There was also the King's German Artillery, part of the King's German Legion.

In 1815 they were augmented, reinforced by the Netherlands artillery arm, which was also quite good.

Everyone forgets the two Brunswick "batteries", one foot and one horse for 1815. I certainly always did until I volunteered to take on the latter for Waterloo Remodelled. 96 draught horse today……painted….well actually 18 still to go.

Netherland artillery contribution,, early on, probably saved the day at Quatre Bras.
