      Well, I can't say that this figure is definitive or nay. However, if
      you take into consideration that every piece that went into action
      during the battle had between 128 (12Pdr.) and 200 (10Pdr. and 3")
      rounds with it, and that most of them expended at least 80% of their
      ammunition, you find that the figure's truth is entirely possible.

      This also is assuming that none of the caissons were sent to the rear
      to refill . . .
