The fortress gunner

The guide

A Prussian chief gunner accompanies you up to the Fuchs bastion and presents a weapons demonstration to interested visitors.
He explains how to handle a sabre and bayonet gun and how they are used in battle and their effects.
Here you learn what makes an "old warhorse", that as a soldier you had to have good teeth and "something on the pan".
At the end of the demonstration, the soldier loads and fires the flintlock rifle in battle.
