Artillery in Canada (14) Master List: Ontario (no photos)

Master List of Artillery preserved in the Province of Ontario

Curators, docents, and volunteers working in Canada’s military museums have been successful in preserving a good number of retired military weapons of war and many interesting and historic pieces of kit are still being sought after and, in some cases, being restored to serviceable condition again.  This list of surviving historic guns and cannon is a collective effort to keep track of where they are presently located in Ontario,and to make that information available to others with the same interest. This page lists the locations of where the guns in Ontario communities, towns and museums can be found.  It is my sincere hope that more of the artillery missing from this list will one day be added to the record i n what we Maritimers still refer to as “Upper Canada”.

Fortsof Canada

 

Manyplaces in Canada which bear the name “Fort” were never militaryestablishments.  Many were simplystockades, log enclosures for fur trading posts of the Hudson’s Bay Company orthe North West Company.  Many in the Westwere also originally police outposts setup by the North West Mounted Policeprior to European-Canadian settlement of the area.  From West to East the forts which remain andwere part of Canada’s defences in Ontario are listed here.

Fort Amherstburg and Fort Malden, Amherstburg.  Fort Erie, Fort Frederick,Fort Frontenac, Fort George (Big River Post), built by the British ca.1820 to defend trade, and Fort Henry, Kingston.  Fort Kaministiquia, ThunderBay.  Fort Matachewan.  Fort Rouillé (also called Fort Toronto).  Fort St. Pierre, Fort Frances.  Fort York and New Fort York, Toronto.  Fort Willow, Springwater.  Fort William, Thunder Bay, built in 1803 bythe Montreal-based North West Company, used for defence until 1821, rebuilt bythe British in 1848.  Fort Wellington, Prescott, was a Britishfort built c1812 on the St Lawrence River to deter an American invasion.  It was garrisoned again in 1838 untilabandoned in 1923.  Fort Mississauga, Niagara-on-the-Lake, was built by theBritish c1814 in the form of a brick tower and star-shaped earthworks to deteran American invasion.  From 1813 to 1855the fort was manned by a British garrison, then taken over and manned by theCanadian Army from 1870 to 1954 for use as a training facility.

FortHenry

Fort Henry (also known as Fort Henry National Historic Site) isin Kingston, Ontario, on Point Henry, a strategic point located near the mouthof the Cataraqui River where it flows into the St. Lawrence River, at the upperend of the Thousand Islands.  Theoriginal fort was constructed during the War of 1812, when present-day Ontario was aBritish colony known as Upper Canada. The fort was constructed on the high ground of Point Henry to protectthe Kingston Royal Naval Dockyard (the site of the present-day Royal MilitaryCollege of Canada) from a possible UnitedStates attack.  The fort also monitoredmaritime traffic on the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, as the loss ofthis vital shipping route would have cut off supplies to Kingston and the restof Upper Canada.

 

Thepresent Fort Henry was constructed between 1832 and 1837 to protect theLake Ontario end of the Rideau Canal. (The canal was part of an alternate route between Kingston and Montréalthat bypassed the St. Lawrence River, which separates Canada and the UnitedStates.)  A system of more elaboratedefensive works was planned but cost overruns in the construction of the canallimited the fortifications to four Martello towers and the fort itself.  At the time, these fortifications were thestrongest defences in Canada west of Québec City.  Among the historic regiments that garrisonedthe fort were the Black Watch, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and theRoyal Welch Fusiliers.  Neither theoriginal nor the second Fort Henry was ever attacked.

TheBritish Army withdrew in 1870 shortly after Canadian Confederation.  Canadian troops then garrisoned the fortuntil 1891.  The fort witnessed thefounding of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, one of the first units in the Canadian Army, whose Bbattery was based at the fort.  Asrelations with the United States continued to improve, the need for defencesalong the border ceased.  During theFirst World War Fort Henry served as a facility for holding Ukrainiandetainees.  Abandoned by the military,the fort fell into disrepair.  In the1930s, under the leadership of Ronald L. Way, restorations took place as part of a government work program duringthe Great Depression.  “Old Fort Henry”became a living museum with the introduction of the Fort Henry Guard and wasopened on 1 August 1938.  During theSecond World War, the fort served as a prisoner-of-war camp for GermanLuftwaffe and Kriegsmarine personnel.

Militaryinterpreters dressed in the uniforms of the Fort Henry Guard staff the fort and conduct demonstrations ofBritish military life and give tours for visitors.  There are also self-guided tours.  Throughout the day there are variousactivities including historical re-enactments of drills and battle tactics, theGarrison Parade, the Victorian School Room, and the Muster Parade, where youngvisitors are dressed in period uniforms and taught to march by a qualifiedmember of the Guard.  There is also aSunset Ceremony every Wednesday in July and August, where a full program ofhistoric drill, music and artillery is presented.

FortHenry has been designated as a National Historic Site ofCanada, and in 2007 was included in the designation of the Rideau Canal as aUNESCO World Heritage Site.  One can alsoview the grounds from Cartwright Point (the location of the CathcartTower).  Parks Canada.

In the seventeenth century, Conster furnace atBeckley in Sussex, England, was owned by the Farndon family.  In the 1690sWilliam Benge leased it to cast shells for Ireland.  Samuel Gott,Farndon's great-grandson, ran the furnace in conjunction with Gloucesterfurnace in the early eighteenth century.  By the 1740s it was includedwithin the Harrison partnership.  It went out of use in the 1760-70s. Although Conster furnace was capable of casting large guns, it was oftenused for the smaller and medium calibres: ½ up to 12 pounders for thegovernment and merchant service.  The C is found on the right-handtrunnion.  This is a rarer mark than those we have looked at earlier andis usually found on smaller calibre guns. Sometimes it can be hard to tell thedifference between a damaged G or C.  (Ruth Rhynas Brown)

In 1829 or the early 1830s a new set of 32-pounderswas developed.  Their design has usually been attributed to WilliamMillar, but the name of Sir Alexander Dickson, Wellington's commander ofartillery in the Peninsula, has sometimes been attached to two of them. Bothmen were Inspectors-General of Artillery, Millar succeeding Dickson in 1827.Millar was well known for his successful design of shell guns and of bronzefield howitzers during the 1820s.  He died in 1838 and Dickson in 1840. David McConnell, British Smooth-Bore Artillery: A Technological Study,(Ottawa, Minister of Supply and Services Canada, 1988), p. 64.

ShermanIII Medium Tank, (Serial No. 7606),US Reg. No. 3062855, built at General Motor's Fisher Tank Arsenal in Flint,Michigan in the last week of September 1942. It is a “small hatch” Sherman, WD No. CT-152655, No. 51, “Holy Roller”.

“HolyRoller” has early direct vision portsfor the driver and co-driver, but also has appliqué armour on the hull sidesand trailing return rollers found on the VVSS version.  It also has an M34 mantlet and a late one-piecefinal drive, upgraded post-war.  It was shipped to England where it wasissued with the War Department number CT-152655. It wasn't until late May/earlyJune 1944 that it was issued to the 6th Armoured Regiment (1st Hussars), justbefore D-Day.

HolyRoller” was crewed by five men when it landed on Juno Beach, includingthen 21-year-old gunner William Reed, Frank White, Ted Doherty, Everett Smithand Frank Fowler (who came up with the name “Holy Roller” because it is theonly Hussar tank which survived the war).  Manned in the battle by these1st Hussars, it has been on display as the 1st Hussar Memorial, in London'sVictoria Park on Central Ave, since 1950 when it was dedicated to the regiment.The 1st Hussars are lauded for being the only regiment to reach its objectivein the Normandy invasion.

Thistank saw combat in NW Europe from D-Day, 6 June 1944 to VE-Day, 8 May 1945.  “Holy Roller” is one of only twotanks to land on D-Day that survived intact to the end of the war.  The other is “Bomb,” on display inthe William Street Armoury in Sherbrooke, Quebec.  There are only fouroriginal Shermans that fought in Europe and returned to Canada in 1945. Theremaining two are “Cathy” at Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, and “ForcefulIII” in the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa, Ontario.

Bronzeand Iron SBML, known as the “Penetang Gun,” stamped 1630, LeGC with a crownabove the breech.  The initials stand for “Le Grand Condé” who servedunder Prince Louis II as Captain General of the French Army in the mid-17thcentury. The gun’s breech is made of Bronze which has been cast in a hexagonalshape. Its iron barrel is reinforced with iron hoops. The chase and breech-endsof the cannon are of separate construction. The wrought iron construction ofthe chase is associated with guns of the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Theoctagonal section of the cast bronze breech and the shape of the cascabel alsoindicate a date in the first half of the 16th century. To be operational itwould have been strapped with iron bands or strong ropes onto a wooden bed,which could itself be mounted on a yoke or carriage. The gun would have beenbrought to Sainte-Marie by the Militia hired to protect the Jesuit Mission. Thegun is reputed to have been found in 1919 by Mr. King of Christian Island whichlinks it with the Jesuit missionaries who fled Sainte-Marie I in 1649. Themissionaries and a large group of Huron people spent the winter of 1649-50establishing Sainte-Marie II on Christian Island, in Georgian Bay.

81-mm C3Mortar, (Serial No. 8392) in service. The 81-mm mortar is an indirect firesupport weapon. It has the tactical advantage of a high trajectory, whichallows it to be sighted and engage targets from behind cover and provideoverhead support to friendly troops. The mortar consists of a monobloc steelbarrel with a smooth bore. The supported barrel in the bipod mount allows it toelevate, depress and cross the mortar within specified limits.

Steel 7-pounder Mk. IVmuzzleloading rifle (MLR) replica, like guns used as pack howitzer in India inthe late 1800s.  The type entered service in 1873 and apparently most ofthem were sent to India. There were six in Canada, with two in service with theNWMP.

This gunis a replica/reproduction. The front sight is a solid plug, there is no vent(touch hole), and since it is about 75 pounds overweight, it is possible thatthe barrel is only bored out for the first three inches and then has an insertto give the impression of a plug.  Externally, it is a reasonabledimensional copy of the Steel Mk. IV MLR, although it may have been cast usingwrought iron and not steel. There are no markings, except for the cypher andcrescent moon.

Thecypher is engraved (not etched), probably freehand. The centre of the garter isthe Kabul Arsenal logo, which appears on the Afghan Martini rifles. This[links] it to Abdur Rahman, who had the arsenal built about 1887. His bio onwiki does not indicate a member of the Order of the Garter, so the cypher isprobably fanciful. Difficult to positively link the arsenal with artilleryproduction. The lettering is “a mixture of Dari and Kufic script,” which [asis] makes no sense, but experts are still working on it.  (Doug Knight)

Bruce who had received it from the Chief of the CeyloneseNavy in 1962.  Bruce was told that it had been recovered in Trincomalee,Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), in 1962.  It ismarked with a crown over the letter P on the barrel. The Crown over a “P”engraved on top of the guns is a mark used to show that this gun was proofed atWoolwich in the UK. This mark is usually preserved for the guns for foreigngovernments, or for certain institutions such as The East India Company, or thePost Office. This gun was cast some time in the second quarter of the 19thcentury.  By this period there are few British companies capable ofcasting these guns, they are usually either Walker and Company, Bailey Pegg andCo, or Low Moor.

Cast Iron4-pounder SBML, John Armstrong pattern sea service Gun, W, commercial 1750 (from tag).

The Wmark on the right trunnion of this gun was in use Britain for a long time andmay refer to more than one furnace in turn. There are two foundries that couldhave cast this gun.  

1. Waldron Furnace. A gun marked W was proved for Harrison and Company inOctober 1757 (Hodgkinson, 1993, 58).

Waldronfurnace was run at the beginning of the eighteenth century by the Pelham familyand later was owned by the Fullers although they did not use it themselves. Instead, it was leased to the Harrison partnership. John Legas wrote tohis partner Samuel Remnant about the shot-casting programme taking place atWaldron in 1745-46. However, in the 1747-48 campaign Waldron was used forcasting 6 and 9 pounder guns. The change may have been caused by the buildingof a new air furnace at Hamsell and the two furnaces’ uses were exchanged.

In the1750s, the furnace at Waldron was operated by Richard Tapsell in conjunctionwith the furnace at Gloucester. In January 1753 John Fuller subcontractedTapsell to cast guns for him at Waldron for the King of Sardinia which Fullerspecified had to be marked IF (Crossley and Saville). Later in 1757 Harrisonhad guns marked W proofed at Woolwich. The furnace at Waldron was rented outfor only a pound in 1785 and was closed by 1787. The W is found on smaller gunsup to 12-pounders.

2. WillyFurnace. Isaac Wilkinson and his son John both were involved in gun-castingusing several furnaces.  The earliest mention of Isaac Wilkinson ofBersham in the Board's records is his request to export small calibre guns fromWrexham for the London merchant service in June 1756. John Wilkinson leftBersham and moved to Willey in Shropshire. His agent John Fawcett offered tocast guns for the Board of Ordnance in 1759. Thus, John Wilkinson's first gunsfor the Board were cast at Willey.

The formof the W on the gun in the CWM collection favours the later date, ca 1755-ca1770.  It is most likely to have beencast by either Waldron, a gun furnace in the Weald run by the Harrison partnership,or Willey, an iron furnace in Shropshire owned by John Wilkinson who wouldbecome one of the most famous of gunfounders.

GermanFirst World War 7.58-cm leichtes Minenwerfer neuer Art (7.58-cm leMW), (Serial Nr. 18328), AEG M1916,mounted on an iron carriage. 12 Can MG Coy on the box trail.

The7.58-cm leMW held by the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa is painted a dark olive green. Other 7.58-cm leMWs across Canada, like theone with the RCA Museum at CFB Shilo, Manitoba, are painted in a field graycolour. One in the Charlottetown Armoury is painted in a combination of greyand black.

(NB –German practice was to use cm instead of mm to identify the calibre of guns).

Theofficial paint schemes for German First World War artillery can be complicated:  In 1914, the standard scheme used on all German Guns was FeldgrauOverall. The exact shade of this Feldgrau - literally: “Field Grey” - wasinvestigated in the 1990-ies when a replica A7V was built in Germany: a largenumber of surviving First World War equipment was examined for traces ofcolours, and it was found out that what is called “Feldgrau” was in reality apretty wide spectrum of colours, ranging from Green to Grey.  This means thatit is hard to go wrong on “Feldgrau”.  If one is to recommend one colour,however, to use for Feldgrau it is the Humbrol #31 Slate Grey.  Guns painted in Feldgrau could be seen allthrough the war.

In1915-16 the first real camouflage schemes started to appear. The plain Feldgraucolour was supplemented by other colours – the Feldgrau was not over-paintedper se. What colours to use and in what patterns, was left to the unitsthemselves. This in turn often depended on what front the equipment wasemployed. A gun used in Champagne, where the earth was very bright, almostwhite, was camouflaged with a much lighter colour, than a gun used, say, at theSomme, where the ground was more yellow in hue. Anyway: the Feldgrau base weregiven blotches or bands, or patches AND bands, of Green, Brown, Yellow, evenBlue and/or White. There were wide variations.

In 1917the Army started to regulate the camouflage schemes used on the Guns. Aftertests (using observers in planes) some colours used earlier were ruled out asineffective: namely White, Bright Yellow (“hellgelbe”) and Bright Blue (“hellblau”).The colours that were to be used henceforth, in this so called BuntenfarbenAnstrich was Sand, Green and Brown (two hues have been observed: Mid-Brown andBrick-Red), painted in irregular blotches and separated by thin Black lines. Thiswas the standard scheme up until the end of the war.

Thebreech for this gun is for a 12-pounder and a 14-pounder, which was a MaximNordenfelt competitor to the 12-pounder. It would therefore appear the breechblocks were interchangeable. The British gunners used the same ammunition forthe two guns.  Canada may not have used the Maxim, although that needs tobe confirmed.

Cast Iron 6-pounder SBML,weight 23-1-8 (2,612 lbs), crown over P, carriage disintegrating. Ruth RhynasBrown published references to these guns in an article on the guns of the EastIndia Company: 1990 “Guns carried on East Indiamen, 1600-1800”. IJNA. vol 19,17-22. 1995 “Arming the East Indiamen” in The Archaeology of Ships of War, ed.Mensun Bound. Oswestry. 114-119. It was introduced by the Board of Ordnance.

Gunsmarked with the Crowned P:  After Wheatley and Company were givenpermission to proof guns for the East India ships, the Board of Ordnancedecided on 3 November 1749, that all guns “which pass the King's proof for thefuture, and for the Merchants' Service, be marked with a Crown and the letter P”(WO 47/34, 422v). In the next few years increasing numbers of East IndiaCompany guns were proofed and in 1755 the Company insisted that all guns forits use had to be proofed at Woolwich. Robert Davidson at Woolwich was paid forcutting crowned Ps for India ships on guns. This mark was also used for guns ofa semi-official nature, such as those cast by John Fuller for the Sardiniangovernment. It was used for the civilian branch of the government, such as fortroop ships, armed transports and post office packets. The form of crowned P onguns like this one suggests an 18th century date, something for a transport inthe Seven Years War or American Wars.  This type of gun vanishes with theintroduction of the carronade.

Both Canadian General Electric and Regina Industries, Ltd,manufactured these carriages in Canada, and they were issued to trainingcentres in Canada starting in December 1941.  The 5th Anti-tankRegiment, RCA, received 2-pounders on Mark 4 carriages in April 1942. British production of the 6-pounder was delayed after Dunkirk because they hadto keep the 2-pounder in production, so Canada got ours up and running first(by a month or so).  We went straight to the 6-pounder carriage andadapted the 2-pounder to it as a temporary fix.  Doug Knight.
