An interesting graphic I came across shows the range of a number of pieces of ordnance and where they could be located and able to engage the Tower of London.
The Tower of London is one of the locations where a Royal Salute is fired during commemorations, the Honorable Artillery Company firing 105 mm Light Guns on ceremonial occasions.
A thought came to mind as to where they could hit if they fired HE rather than blank. With a maximum range of 17,300 metres, they could engage Kew gardens, and reach Syon Park House. The latter is the London residence of the Duke of Northumberland, an interesting target location given this blog is written by Northumbrian Gunner.
Looking at the graphic the other way around, what if those guns were located at the Tower of London rather than the Western Front, what would the Target Location Map look like.
