The 3"50 gun from the decommissioned and dismantled HMCS Fraser was saved and will be placed at HMCS Prevost in London, Ontario. HMCS Fraser was the last survivor of the St. Laurent-class destroyer which were the first Canadian designed and built warships. Plans are to have the gun mounted on the grounds of HMCS Prevost next to the Battle of the Atlantic memorial. It is hoped that it will be in place in time to be dedicated at this year’s Battle of the Atlantic Ceremony on 6 May, 2012. More information at:

Yes Sir.
We've had a few entertaining discussions about where we should actually aim it before it's permanently mounted.    >:D

Could aim it at the pedestrian bridge in front of the amouries ... probably make a few people do a double take.
