RML (rifled muzzle-loading) guns in Tangier, Morocco
Recently on a trip to Tangier, Morocco, I came across an existing battery consisting of two 12" RML guns (25 tons) stilling lying on their carriages. As you can appreciate from the photograph, these were built by Sir W.G. Armstrong & Co. from Newcastle on Tyne. The serial number of these buns were No. 1796 and No. 1799. The pieces are in very good condition which I assume is due to the temparate Medtierranean climate, in spite of the fact that they are not looked after.
