Re: The little bombardier, and pocket gunner.

Hi Stephen,

Some anecdotal collateral support for a 1798 edition of Adye's volume, possibly linked to Don Graves's mention of this date. Whilst a university student in Ottawa in 1977, shortly following the publication of Robert Wilkinson-Latham's Osprey volume on Napoleonic Artillery, I sought assistance from a senior librarian in tracking down a copy of Adye. Eventually, a copy was found in the by appointment only library in the uppermost floor of the Canadian War Museum (then on Sussex Drive), where a kind gentleman named 'Ludwig' permitted me--whilst wearing white cloth gloves--to peruse a copy of the text and make notes from a volume dated 1798. Perhaps Don Graves used the same volume in his research?

Regards,

Bryce
