Here is something for the RAS. The town of La Rochelle was once protestant but Richelieu took it. These canons 'defend' the old Arsenal and to make sure nobody nicks them they were used to hold the gate together. Go figure
Many thanks for your interesting comments and kind votes on the strange hopper. Ray, thanks for the ID, I have goggled it and yes, it is very similar but not it. Help, where is Ade!!
Andrew, it really is that colour.. that is why I took it, I had never noticed it before, like many said, ours are also brown or green, or sand coloured.
