    Certainly not a 25prd: I say Naval too, but I have zero knowledge on Navy gear.

    I'm thinking a coastal gun, the angle of depression does'nt look that great

    Seen this before on another forum, some time ago - but memory failing me! IIRC it was naval, it is no longer there and the scrapyard was in Scotland and had aircraft parts including Bristol Hercules engines - is that enough to jog anyone else's memory?

    It looks like a Naval gun to me, but a lot of coastal guns, and some AA Guns, were repurposed naval weapons anyway. There were 25-Pr naval guns, but I'm pretty sure that isn't one of them. It's definitely not a field gun as everyone says.

    Whatever it is, I'm sure a full description is stamped on the breech. Where did you see this?

    Just had a thought, could it be one of those side elevation guns, used just below main decks on large superstructured ships
