Sharpe's Battle (1995)

Sharpe's Battle is the seventh episode of the Carlton UK series Sharpe, starring Sean Bean as Captain Richard Sharpe, the officer of a small Rifles detachment during the Napoleonic Wars. Sharpe earns the enmity of Brigadier General Guy Loup (Oliver Cotton), the commander of a vicious anti-guerilla unit of the French army in occupied Spain. At the same time, he is tasked as the training master for the Real Compania Irlandesa, a ceremonial unit of expatriate Irish troops, foisted on the British Army by the Spanish royal court.

The following weapons were used in the television series Sharpe's Battle:
