British 4th Regiment of Foot (Barrell’s) Line Infantry Loading

The Jacobite Rebellion 1745

Limited Edition 500

A famous British tactic was “platoon fire”.
At the time a platoon was a half-company. The right-hand files of a company would form the first platoon and the left-hand files of that same company would form the second platoon. The platoon fire would begin at one of the flank platoons of the battalion or regiment, and one or two seconds after the platoon beside them fired, the next platoon would fire.
The effect would be platoon volley after platoon volley rolling down the face of the battalion or regiment, and the result of such disciplined fire was a constant hail of bullets on the enemy formation.
A very experienced soldier could load and fire at a rate of around three shots per minute.
