    Hi, I just wondered if anyone could tell me anything about this weapon? All I can say is it's British(my Great grandfather being one of the engineers in the picture)- though I see an American guy on the right too.
    Thanks for any info at all,
    Mark

    I’m guessing the breach of a naval gun?

    Hi again, thanks for all the great replies, I have seen some faint writing on the end of the barrel, pretty sure the first word is vickers, there's also a number above it if I'm not mistaken(no103?)
