4756A trip to Fort Nelson yesterday to see the "Poppies Wave"
Quite an emotional experience and the display of guns and cannons, some dating back to the 15th century, was exceptional.
Who'd have known that the actual bronze cannons that the VC Medals are made of are here!!

A few random pic's from Fort Nelson. Madam liked the big balls for the world's biggest Howitzer, never fired though.

Definitely an interesting place for a visit. Took SWMBO's uncle a few years back - he took great delight in showing us how he actually used to work the gun he served on in WW2.
