Our Newest Naval Gun The 9.2 in which was to be carried by the King Edward VII.

the restless progress which the production of what an old writer calls "vile guns and villainous saltpetre" continues to make, in spite of all the efforts of peace societies and other praiseworthy agencies, is well exemplified in the above picture. It is difficult to convey in a few simple words any popular idea of this tremendous weapon. Perhaps the best method is to refer to the 4.7 in which became "familiar in our mouths as a household word" in the early days of the war. the above monster is more than twice as good - or, from an enemy's point of view, as bad - as the 4.7 in, for it embodies still later ideas of skilled and scientific construction.
