    Wickham & Graham 32 Pounder

    Ladies & Gents whilst partaking in a "Tiger Beer" by the pool at the E & O Hotel in George Town Penang I came across 4 x 32 Pounder Cannon made by Wickham & Graham, the reason that I've posted images of them is they where made around 1790, brought out on a Man of War then "Cross Decked" to be used in the Islands defences which means they have been exposed to sea air for a long time and just look at the wonderful condition that they are in. The picture of the pool is were I considered throwing myself in after England defeat at football, using one of the 32Lb Cannon balls for ballast.
