HERE are the medium range anti-aircraft guns which are carried in the majority of ships of the Royal Navy today. They are to be seen in aircraft carriers, sloops, frigates and corvettes, in the "Algerine" class minesweepers, in most destroyers, and in the few remaining cruisers. It is very difficult to make out the proportions and arrangements of these guns from photographs, which is not surprising, as this drawing shows how complex they are, even more so than the twin mounted version of them, details of which were published last month. At first glance the drawing seems very confused but, if one ignores detail and considers only the main features, comprehension may result
