6in Gun on HMS Dragon

6in Gun on HMS Dragon
Here we see the back of one of the 6in guns on the Danae class cruiser HMS Dragon, and was taken on 1 September 1933 at Portland Oregon. From this angle we see that the gun is only protected by shield, and the crewwould have been fairly exposed to any enemy fire.
