A Walk in the Artillery Park

It is just a gentle stroll from the pavilion to the artillery park where over the past few months I have positioned a few vintage field guns that I won on Ebay. All are diecast Britains in perfect working order and still capable of firing projectiles. The first is the famous 4.7” naval gun beloved by H. G. Wells, while the other two pieces are “Royal Artillery” guns of different calibres. What will I do with them? Only a time traveller can tell!
