    I find the attached link from the 3rd RTR website somewhat amusing and along similar lines to gravelbelly's anecdote:

    A great story. Love it. I remember I was told there were floating targets off shore that my friend looked at through binoculars and could see the hits. I am of course not sure if they used Bofors or the big guns on these. I think I remember him saying that water pumped through the gun or mount before the firing.
    Again I was not there and wish I could have seen my collectables in action. All too long ago. I have a .5" tube in the collection, V S electric.Hard to find here.

    the water pumped through the gun would probably be for the water cooled barrels,the 40mm bofors ,both twin and quad mounts had them
