<HTML>thanx for all replies.

still leaves me with questions though.

would anyone here like the job of putting the caps into all 4 barrels of a quadruple aa gun as a sunderland comes screaming down!!!!

bugger that.

you\'d be trying to slide down that conning tower hatch asap.

these guns must have been amazingly tough.
to be possible covered in seawater for hours even days and to be expected to be ready to fire as soon as the uboat surfaced.
are there metals or alloys that are impervious to damage from corrosion from saltwater?
if so practically every part of the gun would probably have to be made from this metal.

there\'s got to be more to this than putting caps in barrels surely?

thanx again</HTML>
