Finished the article on the 6inch M1908 Howitzer - on Landships II - thought I'd make a start on the 4.7inch M1906 Gun.

There are lots of surviving 4.7inch guns in the US - including a pair on Lake Michigan between Green Bay and Milwaukee (attached). Anyone know where these guns are located?

Regards,

Charlie

These two are mystery guns, We have no idea where they are. Any guesses anyone?? maybe 70 or so of the M1906 around so not uncommon.

No but I found another pair at Muskegon, MI at 43.260627, -86.243513.
The guns don't show up very well on Google Earth but they are obvious on street view.

Found a news item which says they were restored 2014-15 - www.mlive.com/news/mus...orld.html.

Regards,

Charlie
