The King reviews the artillery ....

After visiting Vanderhof the King returned to Wittenberg. The usual round of courtly activities followed. However he was soon out again reviewing his upgraded field artillery...

 The King has joined the Field Marshal to review the artillery of the Wittenland and Guard corps..
 the artillery moves into the inspection area ....
then  unlimbers and sets up for firing practice ...

 The King is very pleased that his artillery is now ready for forthcoming campaigns...

[recently re-furbished artillery: cannons and crew repainted; new scratchbuilt limbers made from spare wheels, card and cocktail sticks for the centre pole; limber horse teams increased to 4 horses per cannon]
