Russian Cannon

From Royal Irish Fusiliers Museum brochure" "The Museum holds both Victoria Crosses won by the Regiment, both awarded posthumously. All crosses have been cast from the gun barrel of a Russian cannon captured during the Crimean War. Visitors to the Museum can see a fine example of one of these cannons on the Mall."
