Last Cannon Leaves Legion Hall for Museum
The second of two military cannons that had flanked the Legion Hall in Provost for decades is shown being pulled away by Town of Provost public works superintendent Keith Heintz on Friday morning, September 16 at approximately 9:20 a.m. The guns, which were refurbished for free in 2005 by 16 people on their own time from base maintenance Wainwright electrical mechanical engineers weapons section (see PN July 20, 2005) will be situated in front of the Provost and District Museum. Other guns and memorabilia will also be soon taken to the museum for display. For the record: The American made cannons, with a range of nine miles were originally manufactured for the British, but were also used by Canadians. The most important feature of the gun design was the firing platform which allowed the gun rapid 360 degree movement—which proved of great advantage in anti-tank fire. The fastest recorded rate of fire was 17 rounds per minute by the 4th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. Weight of gun and breech mechanism: 1,000 pounds. Total length: 106.72 inches with muzzle break. Length of bore: 92.375 inches. Rifling: 26 grooves, uniform right hand twist 1/20. Breech mechanism: vertical sliding block, hand operated, percussion fired. Elevation: -5 degrees to 40 degrees, later up to 55 degrees on Mk III carriage. Traverse: 4 degrees left or right. Recoil system: hydro pneumatic 20-36 inches dependent on charge. Total weight in action: 3,968 pounds. Rate of fire: 6-8 rounds/minute; 15-25 rounds/4 minutes; 25-40 rounds/10 minutes; 80 rounds/hour. Gun team: the number 1 (commander) stood to the rear of the gun and aided large traverses. The number 2 held the rammer and operated the breech lever and stood to the right of the gun when viewed from the rear, the number 3 known as the layer sat on the wooden seat to the left of the gun adjusted the sights, the number 4 was the loader, the number 5 passed ammunition to the number 4 and checked fuse settings, and the number 6 (second in command) set the fuses and charges. ©Provost News Photo.
