British Artillery - Limbers and horse-saving system
As mentioned elsewhere, because I am better supplied with limbers than horses, I have a modular system designed to stretch a limited number of horses as far as possible. Each limber has a two horse team; I then also have some extra pairs and four horse teams on separate bases, which can be added to limbers as required. My idea is that perhaps when guns are being moved this will be marked by the use of these extra teams.
The two pictures show the modular system with the teams and limbers, first separated and then closed up.
Additionally some of my limbers have longer bases to accommodate guns being towed behind them.
