They've brought up a fieldpiece, from goodness only knows where!
Mick Kennedy trained his one eye like a fieldpiece upon the locality suggested.
Guns had been fired from this quarter and that, German cannon or French, ordnance or fieldpiece.
Meanwhile, the fellow who was driving the mules attached to the fieldpiece, turned his head, and saw what was going on.
