6in. naval guns on display on Macaw B wagons at Swindon Works, c. 1915

6in. naval guns on display on Macaw B wagons at Swindon Works. The guns were sent in from elsewhere, but the manufacture of 40 large field carriages upon which the guns were mounted was a specialist project that demanded a high standard of machining by skilled staff. This project was allocated to the GWR by the Ministry of Munitions. It is not surprising therefore that the completed mounted guns were proudly displayed outside the General Offices and photographed by the Company
