Wow. Watched it and some of the adjoining videos and am frothing for a game of SGN. And I don't even know the rules yet.

Thanks Attilio

Love the video..Onboard the Constitution each morning for Colors they shoot one cannon. That was impressive. I cant imagine standing there while the Victory pours out a whole broadside!!

My father, who was in the RN through both World Wars, told me the Gunnery Officer would recite "If I wasn't a gunner, I wouldn't be here! - SHOOT!!" in between shots, when firing a salute, in order to get the timing right. I expect it is all done with computers today. The broadsides footage is very impressive.
I also always enjoy watching the firing displays by the Kings Troop RHA.
