At Rumsdorf (2) .. ordnance in place

continued from the previous post .....

..... day 2 .....

a few soldiers linger in the camp setup in the Abbey grounds
the King has arrived to check on progress of the initial fieldworks ...
a the gabions are in place for the main battery
the dragoons have made up a forward post from things found around the nearby farm

 ---oXo---
later on in the day, the ordnance has arrived and is in place; a large mortar and some heavy guns...

if no response on surrending the burgh town is received this day then offensive action will start on the morrow.
