St Paul Bastion

Posted on February 27, 2024 / 7
Listing Type : Defence Line
Location : Malta

Between 1876 and 1877 a 64-pdr MLR gun was mounted on a traversing carriage on the salient of St Paul Bastion.  It replaced an earlier 32-pdr SB gun, and it is likely that the adjacent embrasures still mounted 32-pdr SB guns.  The actual gun emplacement has been built over with a new emplacement with ramp.  It appears that this was for a field gun in World War 2, possibly an 18-pdr.  This emplacement overlooks part of the dockyard.
