Four 6in. naval guns are proudly displayed on the tracks outside of A Shop, with County Tank, No. 2232, in steam, just behind. The guns are mounted on carriages with limbers attached. Both carriages and limbers were made at the Works, with the first orders (and subsequent repairs) for various gun carriages by the Government coming through to Swindon in late 1914. This continued until late 1917
