    Im doing research on Naval gunnery so I can present a naval living history. Looking for material on how crew drilled on naval guns and how the guns were operated by their lines to be moved in and out of battery. Any good suggestion on sources or materials that might help me?

  2. I would suggest the Navy Ordnance Instructions as a baseline for drill. For instance, page 46 of the 1866 manual details drill for broadside guns: http://books.google.com/books?id=xklAAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA46#v=onepage&q&f=false
