A model of a cannon
(Dimensions Length about 2 cms , the wheel diameter about 8mm.)
This reminded me of a poem we read at school -
"Cannon to the right of them
cannon to the left of them
cannon in front of them
volley'd and thunder'd"
The poem "Charge of the Light Brigade" was written in a few minutes by Lord Alfred Tennyson - after hearing about the events in the Battle of Balaclava 1854, in the Crimean War.
