Artillery preserved in Canada: Ontario, 

Kingston, Royal Military College

Data current to 26 Aug 2018.

The aim of this website is to locate, identify and document every historical piece of artillery preserved in Canada.  Many contributors have assisted in the hunt for these guns to provide and update the data found on these web pages.  Photos are by the author unless otherwise credited.  Any errors found here are by the author, and any additions, corrections or amendments to this list of Guns and Artillery in Canada would be most welcome and may be e-mailed to the author at hskaarup@rogers.com.

Note: Back in the day, artillery in Canada was referred to by its radio call sign "Sheldrake".  It is now referred to by its "Golf" call sign.  (Acorn sends)

The artillery data has become to big for all the guns in Ontario to be listed on one page, therefore the guns on display within the City of Kingston are listed separately here.  Photos are by the author unless otherwise credited.
