Dunwich Museum

Flemish Gun 1550

A fine barrel from an unknown wreck near Dunwich. The dolphin loop at the breech for the recoil rope is one of the features adopted by founder Gregor Loffler of Augsburg who cast guns for Emperor Charles V.

Recovered in 1994 by Suffolk Underwater Studies Centre from an unidentified wreck; probably lost in 1672 at the Battle of Solebay.
