    "A Naval Gun In The Making"

    Video detailing the manufacture of a 15-inch naval gun in the UK. An interesting process considering the age of this operation. If these guns were still being made, you wonder how much of this process would still be relevant:

    There was one part of the process where the barrel is wrapped with some sort of wire. Presumably that's a form of reinforcement?
