Can someone please tell me a single one of these " many reports " that says the men only had 40 rounds ?

So they had been specifically ordered to carry all there kit and 70 rounds, so can someone show me the
Many Sources that say they had 40 ?

This thread is specifically about if the men were carrying less then 70 rounds, not the supply to them during the battle.

Under which conditions would soldiers have 40 or 70 with them? Are there any known regulations?

Jackson, in his letter to the editor of SOTQ, clearly proves Morris, Barry are inncorrect when they say the
men had 40 or 50 rounds.

Barry says

"Once again there are many reports which say that those men who were at lunch
and turned out in a hurry, only had 40 rounds on them."


He is incorrect, there isn't a single report that says the above, Jackson went through everyone one.

LH

They say they fired 50 rounds, then went off and fired the rest, ergo they had then 50.
