West Sussex Advertiser and South Coast Journal, October 23, 1856


The guns for the NEW FORT, together with 20 tons of powder, shot, and other requisites, are daily expected. The guns required are five in number. We hear that they are three 68-pounders, and two 32-pounders; the former weighing, without their platforms, five tons each. A detachment of men from the royal artillery, at Woolwich, are also expected to assist in disembarking and mounting them.
