'Charging on' query

Post by Molesworth » Sun Feb 09, 2020 11:15 am

We had a situation last week where a regiment of English heavy dragoons destroyed their first target (a battery of cannon) and charged on (great dice roll as they had 21" to play with) and hit another battery that had been deployed behind the guns.We agreed the distance was too short for the second battery to get a shot in during defensive fire but none of us was sure whether a target of a charge on move gets defensive fire? Having ridden over this second battery the English hit a French column. This time we decided the column had plenty of time to loose of what turned out to be a ineffective volley before they were hit and broken. Did we do this correctly? Do target units in a charge on move get to fire defensively?

Just seen the answer on a different thread from years ago.
