Mr Monkey aboard HMS Warrior, 30th August

"I expect they'd swivel the gun before actually firing, wouldn't they?"

Mr Monkey left the bridge, and scampered along the deck to the prow. On the way he noticed how high the sides of the ship were, and realised that the commander really needed the bridge to be able to see anything much. At the prow, Mr Monkey found another Armstrong 110 pounder breech loading rifled gun. He wondered if there was a reason it was aimed at the Warrior's own bowsprit and decided it was just for the sake of tidiness.
