rolt968 Posted 21 January , 2018 Share Posted 21 January , 2018 I am researching a Royal Marine gunner who was lost at Coronel with HMS Monmouth. Can anyone tell me which guns on HMS Monmouth were manned by marines? Traditionally on cruisers and capital ships with four main turrets Royal Marines manned X turret. I believe this was because traditionally it was nearest to their mess deck. HMS Monmouth had fourteen six inch guns, but only two twin turrets (one each fore and aft) on the centre line. The rest were side mounted. RM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
