Re: Royal Navy Admiral Bicorn - Need Info

Hi Joey

I have used Military Heritage several times and they are very helpful and service, although not prompt, is reliable
I would suggest phoning them and chatting about your requirements

Percussion fowling firearm

I am searching in vain for the earliest recorded percussion firearm
The closest I have managed to get is Joseph Manton making reference to them in his 1811 book
In 1807 the idea was patented so a few fowling firearms must have been produced before 1811
Does anyone know of any example
Many thanks

Thanks for everyones continued help
I am making progress with Jonas it really does (suprisingly) seem to be a popular first name for the late 1700's
If I can get some birth records I will post them
I am amazed as Jonas is not a name I had encountered before

Name abbreviations

We are having a bit of trouble
In our regimental role a lot of names are obvious like Chas for Charles etc
But "JNS" has got us baffled
Any ideas?
Could Johnson be a first name in the early 1800's??

Exactly Cleggy you have perfectly countered his argument The artillery must be to the side of a line to sweep through as suggested whereas a column being densly packed each hit will count and count again The English/Cornish line of two or three deep would result in six to eight casualties per artill...
