Guns & Carriages (pdf e-book)
  • Description

This facinating book details construction of the World's first reproduction Moncrieff Depression Mounting together with a review of the author Austin C Carpenter's celebrated work in the reconstruction and display of artillery worldwide.

Following the publication of his book, Cannon - The Conservation, Reconstruction and Presentation of Historic Artillery, in 1993, Austin C Carpenter continued to undertake a number of large-scale and ground-breaking projects, not the least of which was his involvement in the construction of the world's only fully operational example of the Moncrieff depession mounting carriage, installed at Crownhill Fort, Plymouth, England, in a purpose built emplacement, identified by the author during restoration work there in the 1980s.

Historians and artillery experts worldwide have since clamoured for more information concerning the Moncrieff carriage, and the publication of this book is a response to their demands. Here is a an account of the origins of the Moncrieff systeym, details of the early guns and their emplacements throughout the world, evidence of their remains, and a full study of the reproduction of the carriage and its gun under the aegis of The Landmark Trust.

Guns and Carriages also looks at the remarkable career of the author, and provides details of all the ordnance work undertaken by him worldwide.
