Hi!

 

I was reading at  a newspaper and saw the following sentence  "They had some 156 cannon and the standard gun for the infantry, a smoothbore musket fitted with a bayonet on a socket over the barrel of a gun Observing that his troops were outnumbered by the French, Wellington decided that his best plan was to stand firm until the Prussians could come to his aid. He lined the majority of his troops up out of sight behind the ridge and garrisoned some in front at the farms of Hougoumont, La Haye Sainte and Papelotte.

"

 

The question is: which is the plural of cannon: cannons and ....?

 

thanks a lot - sandra tiriba
