Calgary, HMCS Tecumseh

12-pounder 8-cwt QF Naval Landing Gun, weight 8-0-0 (896 lbs), Gun Serial No. 1034, dated 1899, Breech Block Serial No. 4532 stamped out, new No. 1034, dated 1917, Carriage weight 6-cwt, Admiralty No. 94, 1899,  with Limber.  Queen Victoria cypher.  The 12-pounder 8-cwt QF NLG was carried on ships of the British and Commonwealth navies for use by naval landing parties. This gun has a breech block for a 12-pounder 12-cwt NLG, (Serial No. 111), 1917.  Several of the photos of the breech screw seem to have “12-pr 12-cwt A & 8-cwt” on them.  This suggests that the breech screw was common to the two guns.  Both were ship’s guns and this would have simplified spare parts.  Apparently an upgrade was made in the QF breech mechanism a few years later, and new blocks were sent out from Britain.  The originals were likely returned to Woolwich or Elswick to be modified in turn and sent to another location.  (Nelson Lawry).  The Naval Landing Guns found in Canada probably originated on early ships of the Royal Canadian Navy, such as HMCS Niobe, HMCS Aurora, HMCS Rainbow and others.  There is also a possibility that the gun may have been left behind when the British garrisons left Canada in 1905-06.

ChurchillPrince of Wales Fort, National Historic Site of Canada

The Prince of Wales Fort National Historic Site of Canada near Churchill in Northern Manitoba was built in the early 18th century by the Hudson’s Bay Company to support the fur trade.  The Fort stands at the mouth of the Churchill River and encompasses a massive fortification along with installations at Cape Merry, a defensive battery situated on a point of land across the river opposite the fort, and Sloop Cove, which was the HBC’s winter harbour.  Built between 1731 and 1771, the 12-metre thick walls of the fortress protected the HBC’s major supply route through Arctic waters until it was surrendered by Samuel Hearne to the French in 1782.

Each of the 40 guns mounted on the ramparts of Prince of Wales Fort is positioned at a gun port and located on a stone plinth.  24 of the guns bear the Royal cypher of King George II (1727-1760), six of the guns bear the Royal cypher of Queen Anne (1702-1714), and 12 guns do not have a visible cypher.  Gun weights and data courtesy of Parks Canada, Henry Unglik and Alex Barbour,  A Metallurgical and Corrosion Study of the 18th Century Cast Iron Cannons from Fort Prince of Wales, Manitoba, prepared for Kathryn Roll, Chief, Historic Resource Conservation, Prairie Region, Winnipeg.  Laboratory Nos. : 89-2193 to 89-2215.  (Historic Resource Conservation, National Historic Sites, Environment Canada, Parks Service Canada; and Heritage Conservation Program, Architecture and Engineering Services, Public Works Canada, Ottawa, March 1992).  Gun weights from pp. 28-34.

Bowen stands for William Bowen, an owner of a furnace in Cowden, County Kent, England).  This gun is mounted on a wood gun carriage with limber and stands in the centre field of the fort.

The numbers 4-3-15 represent the weight of the gun barrel given in hundredweights.  The first number is the amount of hundredweights, which equals 112 lbs. The second number given is the amount in quarter hundredweights, which is 28 lbs.  And the last number is just the simple pounds.  Breaking it down using the 4-3-15 marked on the cannon: 4 x 112 lbs. = 448 lbs, 3 x 28 lbs. = 84 lbs, + 15 lbs = 547 lbs., which is the weight of the gun barrel.

Lord Ligonier became the Commander in Chief of the British Army in 1757.  He stepped down from that position in 1759 to become the Master General of Ordnance.  This new position placed him in charge of all artillery, engineers, fortifications, transports, and hospitals in the British Army.  Surrounding the stamp in Latin is the motto for The Most Honorable Order of the Bath – Tria juncta in uno (“three joined in one”) – of which Lord Ligonier was a member. The three in one may reference the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland or the Holy Trinity.

Saint Marie among the Hurons, Midland

Bronze and Iron Smoothbore Muzzleloading Gun, known as the “Penetang Gun”, stamped 1630, LeGC with a crown above the breech.  The initials stand for "Le Grand Condé” who served under Prince Louis II as Captain General of the French Army in the mid-17th century.  The gun’s breech is made of Bronze which has been cast in a hexagonal shape.  Its iron barrel is reinforced with iron hoops.  The chase and breech-ends of the cannon are of separate construction.  The wrought iron construction of the chase is associated with guns of the late 15th and early 16th centuries.  The octagonal section of the cast bronze breech and the shape of the cascabel also indicate a date in the first half of the 16th century.  To be operational it would have been strapped with iron bands or strong ropes onto a wooden bed, which could itself be mounted on a yoke or carriage.  The gun would have been brought to Sainte-Marie by the Militia hired to protect the Jesuit Mission.  The gun is reputed to have been found in 1919 by Mr.  King of Christian Island which links it with the Jesuit missionaries who fled Sainte-Marie I in 1649.  The missionaries and a large group of Huron people spent the winter of 1649-50 establishing Sainte-Marie II on Christian Island, in Georgian Bay.  (Sainte-Marie among the Hurons Midland, Ontario.  Ministry of Tourism and Culture)

Smoothbore reinforced breech-loading swivel gun, of a kind that was invented in the 14th century.  They were loaded by inserting a mug-shaped chamber already filled with powder and projectiles (technically pieces of metal, and yes stone cannonballs were used as ammunition).  The breech-loading swivel gun had a high rate of fire, and was especially effective in repelling boarders and pirates on ships.  The earliest versions were made from strips of metal held together with reinforcing bands - and the real ones from the earliest voyages of explorers to Canada are quite rare, so the one at Fort Chambly may be a replica.  The Portuguese made great use of them off Canada's East coast.

Cast Iron 12-pounder 6-cwt Smoothbore Muzzleloading Carronade with a Blomefield pattern breeching ring, mounted on a wooden carriage, inside the museum.  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.

Mont-Blanc Gun, heavily damaged.  On the morning of 6 December 1917, the French munitions ship Mont-Blanc, inbound for a brief stop on her way to war-torn Europe with a cargo of 200 tons of TNT, 2,300 tons of picric acid, 35 tons of benzol and 61 tons of gun cotton, collided in the harbour Narrows of Halifax with the outbound Belgian relief ship Imo.  The Mont-Blanc caught fire and blew up at 9:04:35 a.m., the most violent man-made non-laboratory explosion in history prior to the atomic bomb.  The explosion killed 1,963 people, injured more than 9,000, and destroyed much of the then north ends of Dartmouth and Halifax.  The 1,200-pound Gun from the Mont-Blanc’s stern was hurled more than two and a half kilometres over the harbour and town to Little Albro Lake.  Salvaged, and displayed at various sites, it was acquired and presented to Colonel Sidney Oland to the Dartmouth Heritage Museum, which placed it in 1992 close to where the gun had come to rest in 1917.  The Heritage Foundation, Nova Scotia.

In 1812 Mr. H. C. Watts asked Governor Duckworth to give Carbonear three guns to protect itself from American privateers.  The biggest gun was called "Watts Long Tom" and was mounted on Harbour Rock Hill.  Watts' Long Tom, was placed in a gun pit at Crocker's Cove Point in 1812 by the crew of H.M.S. Comet, under the command of Capt. Blamey.  He had been sent around the  harbours to the north of St. John's both to place weapons to defend the harbours and to raise Volunteer Companies to man them. (Duckworth Papers pp 2647-50, 2810-2811 et al, PANL MG204 - mf copy of orig. PAC).  The cannon was hauled from Crocker's Cove Point to Harbour Rock Hill in February 1817 during the Winter of the Rals.  The starving men from the smaller coves to the north of Carbonear aimed it into the town to threaten the merchants into giving them supplies.  They came to some resolution.  It appears to be an older pattern Armstrong 18 or 24 pdr, probably from the stores in St. John's.  Someone tried to fire it in recent times and blew the front of the muzzle off.  (Alan Cass, Carbonear Heritage Society)

3-pounder QF (V) (Vicker's Model) Hotchkiss Gun, mounted on a naval gun stand in the War Memorial Park.  It is marked R.C.D. 1906.  It was a shipboard weapon brought to Carbonear by Capt. Cyrus Taylor, and stood across the road from his house until being moved to the present site in 1980.  Capt. Taylor was captain of many semi-official vessels during and after the First World War and this 3-pounder could have been taken from any one of them.  For instance he commanded the ex-RN sloop Lobelia when it had been given to Newfoundland and outfitted as a Labrador passenger ship.

Bronze 6-pounder Smoothbore Muzzleloading Gun, No. 1, on the wreck of HMS Erebus, lost during the Franklin Expedition.

Bronze 6-pounder Smoothbore Muzzleloading Gun, No. 2, on the wreck of HMS Erebus, lost during the Franklin Expedition.

HMS Erebus was a Hecla-class bomb vessel designed by Sir Henry Peake and constructed by the Royal Navy in Pembroke dockyard, Wales in 1826. The vessel was named after the dark region in Hades of Greek mythology called Erebus.  The 372-ton ship was armed with two mortars, - one 13-in (330-mm) and one 10-in (250-mm), and ten guns.  The ship was abandoned during the Franklin Expedition in 1848 and rediscovered in a submerged state in September 2014 after a long search.

HMS Terror, the other ship that was travelling with Erebus when it sank, has not yet been found but may also have had two Smoothbore Muzzleloading Guns.  Franklin was a Royal Navy officer and explorer who departed England in 1845, looking to traverse the last uncharted sections of the Northwest Passage. The two ships became icebound and all 128 aboard were lost. A number of missions had tried to locate the wrecks, with the first setting out in 1848. Since 2008, Parks Canada has lead six major searches. On 12 September 2016, the Arctic Research Foundation announced that the wreck of Terror had been found in Nunavut's Terror Bay, off the southwest coast of King William Island.  The wreck was discovered 92 km (57 mi) south of the location where the ship was reported abandoned, and some 50 km (31 mi) from the wreck of  HMS Erebus, discovered in 2014.
