Coronation Gun 39

Gun 39 was recovered from the Inshore Coronation wreck site off Penlee in 1983 and was moved to Fort Bovisand where it was de-concreted and recorded. The gun was then used for diver training for lifting exercises so it shows signs of wear and tear. Later the gun was moved by PMARIG to the Breakwater Fort to be included in a site set up for training divers to record shipwrecks. In 2011 the gun was moved back to Fort Bovisand.
