Twin Four Inch Gun from HMCS Buckingham

In the Parc des Anciens-Combattants in Buckingham, Québec you will see a twin four inch gun and two anchors from HMCS Buckingham, a river class frigate that served in World War II.

You can see more photographs of this site on my blog site, Memorials in Ottawa. Should you ever build a model of a Canadian ship that had this gun on it, you can go to Buckingham and get a very good reference for it.
