The shrapnel is really a flying cannon, which shoots its charge while in flight or explodes on contact. Its speed of 500,000 ft per second is produced by a pressure of from 50,0001b to 35,0001b per square inch from the powder that expels it from the gun. Life Guardsmen cost £27 to equip with full uniform.
