Regarding old cannons

Saw these two today at Saldanha - Military area - Malgaskop, overlooking Saldanha bay

They are beyond repair - such a shame

Edward VII - king between 1901 and 1910, I think.  Pretty old stuff.

My son is at the Military Academy, and a member of Malgaskop - quite a tradition
Went to visit him today and drove up there
Everything up there is beyond repair, a great shame, actually
