シドニーの中心街にあるハイドーパークの南端にあります。この大砲は第一次世界大戦で活躍したドイツの巡洋艦エムデンに搭載されていた大砲になります。多くの連合軍の商船などを沈めましたが、オーストラリア海軍の巡洋艦シドニーに撃沈されています。何かの戦記で読んだことがあったので覚えていたのですが、確か撃沈といっても座礁して破壊したので大砲などは鹵獲できたのでしょうね。 more »It is located at the southern end of Highdo Park in the heart of Sydney. This cannon will be a cannon that was mounted on the German cruiser Emden that was active in the First World War.

This monument in the southeast corner of Hyde Park contains a 4" gun taken in 1914 from the German light cruiser Emden after it was defeated by the HMAS Sydney in the Cocos Islands. It's not very big.
