This is a one of the best books related to modern day landscape photography in East of Anglia for me at this moment, beautifully designed, very easy to read and most importantly there are so many great locations for us photographers to discover that are explained and showned in this book. If you haven't bought it yet, I highly recommend you to do so!
artillery implements are used for loading and in some cases unloading the artillery piece. Implements such as the rammer and sponge were stored under the gun by hooks and a flexible chain with a hasp on both ends. For my 1/3 scale Howitzer I made these piece from sheet metal and small pieces of cold rolled steel. Each chain link is bent by hand,
Rifled Muzzle Loader (RML) Cannon
This is the largest of the 6 known cannons of this type in Mumbai. RML Cannons were produced roughly between 1870 and 1890 and were in use right from their inception up until the First World War. They were originally all mounted on naval warships and were later moved to shore defence batteries when they came to be replaced by Breech Loading Cannons. The crest on the gun is that of Queen Victoria and the cannon thus cannot predate 1901 (the year of her demise).
Two smaller cannons of the Rifled Muzzle Loader type are seen mounted outside Gun Gate (behind the Asiatic Society building), two mid-sized cannons are currently displayed on the lawns of the Governor's Bungalow which were part of the coastal defence battery placed there. One more is said to be inside the Naval Dockyard.
