The court of inquiry is cancelled and Sharpe and Runciman's careers are saved, as is the British position in Spain. In the whole engagement, the Light Division suffered just 43 casualties.

The standard infantry weapon across all the armies was the muzzle-loading musket. This allowed the infantry time to retreat out of range.
