    Cascable Trunnion Strap Notch


Most trunnions were cast integral with the cast iron tube itself. Brooke`s design, however, precluded this configuration by calling for reinforcing bands which cover about one-half of this tube. Applied trunnions are the only answer here. The methods of application can be different though. This Brooke Gun had a one-piece, slip- fit, `trunnion-ring`with two trunnions, which was almost certainly made of forged, wrought-iron, held in place by precision made and fitted yokes and a large, wrap-around, strap which passed through the notch pictured.
