A good model of a British QF 4.7 inch Naval gun on field carriage, the ordnance measuring 11.5 in. and with working interrupted-screw breech block, fitted with a sighting telescope, steel mounted wooden carriage with steel wheels conforming to the 'Percy Scott' type but incorporating a recoil buffer, overall length 42 cm (16.5 in.). The most famous application of this type of gun was during the Siege of Ladysmith, South Africa, 1988-1900, when the Royal Navy assisted the Army by providing long range guns on improvised carriages (giving rise to the Royal Navy's Field Gun Competition). The recoil buffer was a feature of later Woolwich type carriages.
