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

Private Bickley wrote
" The men were dismissed with orders not to take off there accoutrments."

Private Wilson wrote
"Colonel Pulleine gave orders to fall out without taking of their accoutrements."

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 ?

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

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

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