Hello, Sven. I think at the period you ask about, the gun carriage & limber timber sections were a brick red colour, the metal fittings were black, and the barrels natural metal colour.
Cheers, Rohan.

Thank you so much Rohan.
I also wonder about the artillery uniforms for this period.
The information I have is for WSS.
I also have the pdf for French in Ireland during the NYW. I t shows the gunners with grey coat ,blue facings and red breeches and socks. Is that also true for the French on the continent?
One of the artillery uniforms for WSS is shown as blue coat red facings.
Thank you again.
Greetings Sven
