My acknowledge to Ruth Brown, co-editor  of the  ICOMAM Magazine who has been discovered one more British cannon proved 30 December 1806 by the East Indian Company in Fort William. Now it is on display in the Army Museum in Istanbul, mistakenly identified Venetian. Three other cannons of Fort William are in the Black Sea Fleet Museum in Sevastopol.   

Thanks to Alexander from Kiev for pictures of the guns in the Kiev-Pechersk fortress XI-XIX c.c. Some of them  seem to be models, however, there are true guns of the Russian Empire XVIII c. (1,2) . Also, there are photos of the guns of the civil war in USA (1,2 and 3).


Here could be the photo of the gun in your city !
