Cannon Shot.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your kind votes and comments on previous image.
Today, a large pin on which a cannon moves up and down to determine whether the cannon ball goes over the top of a ships mast or sploshes into the sea just short of its target.Smile This cannon however, would've been firing out at invading ships that were sailing up the river Medway.
Off to have a hearing test now so catch up with you later. What?

All the best to all,

That's a trunnion, John. A word I can never remember when I need it, of course. Looks to me that the cannon it supports would rearrange your hearing for you if it went off nearby.
Mono for me too, please. But you already knew that!

Lovely clear image. I hope no one ever points a cannon at us, but then I doubt we will ever be coming up the River Medway so we should be OK Smile
