No. 1. Cast Iron 68-pounder 36-cwt Smoothbore Muzzleloading Carronade with a Blomefield pattern breeching ring, weight 36-0-21 (4,053 lbs), mounted on a wood naval gun carriage.  A cannon ball is cemented in the muzzle.  1st group of 3 guns.  

The Carronade is a short smoothbore, cast iron cannon, which was used by the Royal Navy and first produced by the Carron Company, an ironworks in Falkirk, Scotland.  It was used from the 1770s to the 1850s.  Its main function was to serve as a powerful, short-range anti-ship and anti-crew weapon.  While considered very successful early on, Carronades eventually disappeared as rifled naval artillery changed the shape of the shell and led to fewer and fewer close-range engagements.

Le Carronade est un canon court en fonte à alésage lisse, utilisé par la Royal Navy et d'abord produit par la Carron Company, 
une forge de Falkirk, en Écosse. Il a été utilisé des années 1770 aux années 1850. Sa fonction principale était de servir d'arme
anti-navire et anti-équipage puissante à courte portée. Bien que considérée comme très réussie au début, les Carronades ont
finalement disparu alors que l'artillerie navale rayée changeait la forme de l'obus et entraînait de moins en moins d'engagements
à courte portée.

No. 26.  German First World War 10.5-cm Feldhaubitze 98/09 (10.5-cm FH 98/09), (Serial Nr. 5051), Fr.  Kp. 1917.  This gun was captured ca 1918 by the 22nd Battalion (French Canadian), 5th Infantry Brigade, 2nd Canadian Division, Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), in France.  A cannonball is cemented in the muzzle.

The 10.5 cm Feldhaubitze 98/09 (10.5 cm FH 98/09), a short barreled (1625-mm) 105-mm howitzer, also referred to as the 10.5-cm leichte Feldhaubitze (light field howitzer) 98/09, was used by Germany in the First World War and after.  It had a maximum range of 6,300 metres (20,700 ft).   It was originally built by Rheinmetall as the 10.5-cm Feldhaubitze 98, an old-fashioned, fixed-recoil weapon delivered to the German army in 1898; between 1902 and 1904, it was redesigned, by Krupp, with a new recoil mechanism and a new carriage.  However, it wasn't accepted for service until 1909, hence the ending designation 98/09. Existing weapons were rebuilt to the new standard.  As usual, two seats were attached to the gun shield.  There were 1,260 in service at the beginning of the First World War.

Ce canon a été capturé vers 1918 par le 22e bataillon (canadien-français), 5e brigade d'infanterie, 2e division canadienne, 
Corps expéditionnaire canadien (CEC), en France. Un boulet de canon est cimenté dans la bouche.
Le Feldhaubitze 98/09 de 10,5 cm (FH 98/09 de 10,5 cm), un obusier de 105 mm à canon court (1625 mm), également appelé 
leichte Feldhaubitze de 10,5 cm (obusier de champ léger) 98/09, a été utilisé. par l'Allemagne pendant la Première Guerre
mondiale et après. Il avait une portée maximale de 6 300 mètres (20 700 pieds). Il a été construit à l'origine par Rheinmetall
sous le nom de Feldhaubitze 98 de 10,5 cm, une arme à recul fixe à l'ancienne livrée à l'armée allemande en 1898; entre 1902
et 1904, il a été repensé, par Krupp, avec un nouveau mécanisme de recul et un nouveau chariot. Cependant, il n'a été accepté
pour le service qu'en 1909, d'où la désignation finale 98/09. Les armes existantes ont été reconstruites selon la nouvelle norme.
Comme d'habitude, deux sièges ont été attachés au bouclier du pistolet. Il y en avait 1 260 en service au début de la Première
Guerre mondiale.
