Napoleonic British Horse Artillery 6-pdr Cannon
Britain created its horse artillery arm in 1793 as a means of giving valuable heavy-gun support to its cavalry.
The use of fast-moving cannons had been successfully used by the British East India Company in India, and also by the armies of Frederick the Great.
With its artillerymen all riding into battle - on horses, wagons or limbers - the Royal Horse Artillery was able to keep up with the troopers it was meant to support.
