Summary[edit]

Description
English: Hurst Castle : Twin 6 PDR These twin 6 pounder Quick Firing guns were widely used on coastal defence works before and during the 1939-45 war. They had a rapid rate of fire and range of approximately 5,500 yards. These guns were mounted for a time on Fort Albert before being transferred to Hurst Castle. They were manufactured in 1936 and are very rare in having the royal cipher of King Edward VIII.
