Hope this helps, taken from an official account :' The 5 Gun Battery - to the right of the first parallel of the Right Attack, with 1 Lancaster gun, 95cwt and 4-68 pounders from HM Ships Terrible and Retribution. This battery was intended to oppose and breach the Malakoff Tower.'

Having looked at a map of the siege, it appears to be the last battery on the extreme right of the first parallel and in front of 'Frenchman's Hill'
