    ~ Ship of The Line 18th Century British Royal Navy Cannon ~


    This is a 18 pounder semi-carronade cannon having the iron barrel constructed with six moulded turns/stages.

    This cannon was a heavy caliber for early ships of the line. The Royal Navy used the 18-pounder on frigates, which carried 28 guns. Fourth rates ships carried 26 on their secondary batteries, and third rates carried 28. Unlike the French, the British used second rates, of 90 to 98 guns; the 90-gun vessels carried thirty 18-pounders on their middle deck, while the 98-gun vessels carried a total of sixty 18-pounders, distributed over both the second and the third deck. First rates carried thirty-four 18-pounders on their third deck and 24-pounders on the middle deck.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel has a length 80 inches (2.03 m).

    The trunnion width is 23 inches (58 cm).

    The muzzle diameter is 5 inches.

    The cannon weighs approximately 2.000 metric tons.

    ~ Condition ~

    The cannon is rather rusty but would paint up well after shot blasting. It is not a sea recovered piece.

    It was acquired from a midlands militaria museum.

    ~ Transportation ~

    We would prefer collection in person from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard but are happy to liase with your transportation requirements.
