Hi,
I’m starting to research 12 and 15 pounder field guns in the Boer War,
what I’m looking for is information on which units had which particular guns with serial number of them please. Or a list of serial numbers for the field guns used in the Boer War.

Many thanks.
Jim

Does a list of guns used by serial numbers exist?

The guns had logbooks which have been lost over time, these would have told us about the field gun, where it had been, at home service or service abroad , also how much ammo it had fired, so they would know the wear of the bore (rifling) and the general condition of the gun.
