Big Gun

This imposing old gun stands at the entrance to Hull Marina. A local diving club rescued it in 1984. It was recovered from the SS Greltoria, which was sunk on its maiden voyage in 1917 by a German submarine off Flamborough Head. The irony is that it is an anti-submarine gun. There's more about the wreck here.
