I have recently acquired a copy of an experimental method of mounting early C19th ships’ guns that is entirely new to me. It is noted as an attempt to improve the gunnery of the British Fleet. Can anyone advise as to the proved integrity of the method and any subsequent implementation on regular vessels?
