Having built a replica of one of the more unusual WW2 raiding /reconnaisance craft - the Mark 8 Cockle Canoe - HMS has now moved to 'arm' it, albeit with an authentic-looking Vickers 'K' Gun (opp.)This is a 'gas-firing' replica which will be mounted ahead of the new season.

Below is an image of a powered Cockle canoe variant, out in the Far East during WW2, with a Vickers K gun mounted.
