In Response To: Battle of Waterloo documentary ()

Part 3 of the documentary has some interesting artillery content. Particularly the modern reproduction shell, roundshot and canister rounds and their likely effects in combat when fired from a contemporary cannon. Note that the narrator describes a canister case as breaking up at the point of exit from the barrel. I wondered if that statement was prompted by the programme's artillery expert Major West?
