Victory Firing a Broadside

Just came across this video clip of HMS Victory firing a broadside at dusk. It is probably the first broadside fired by Victory since Trafalgar. It is impressive even when one considers the cartridges are undoubtedly the equivalent of salute cartridges and not full charges.

    Impressive even if salute charges and on a small video.

    Just imagine the pounding on your body from the thunder if you were on the ship..

    Good find!
