It werfs minen
A Scottish town had this lumpy old gun floating around for several decades. Some thought it a harpoon cannon.Others a Turkish naval gun recovered during the Great War. After coating it in thick black paint to help curb rust, the gun sat as a lawn ornament for years near the city center.
However in recent months, making the choice to see just what it was that they had, the town found out that their gun is a rare (just two in the UK and less than a half-dozen in the world) World War I era German Army 17 cm mittlerer Minenwerfer.
