    I thought the key belonged to "Long Lance" on gunboards. I wonder where would such a storage usually be? On a ship or on the shore? Anyone knows?

    Here's the online dictionary citation for salute gun:

    礼砲 【れいほう Rei-hō】 (n) salute (gun)
    隊長は礼砲を放つように命じた。 The captain gave orders for a salute to be fired


    The lead kanji on the tag, , is the pre-1946 one for [rei/manners, etiquette, bow, ceremony/ritual].
