Within the dockyard is a field gun and around the plinth are 6 brass etchings related to the use of the field gun in the Boer War and the evolution of the field gun run (until 1999) at the annual military tattoo.



Behind the field gun are the aircraft carriers Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales.

Not really a betting man, notwithstanding, if I were, I suspect my money would be on the field gun, at least they actually worked rather well and could be relied upon!

I believe that's a 15 pounder, am I right?
I attach some images of these field guns in use, plus a shell and T-friction tube.
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
