Life of Great Guns. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 14 October 1914

Life of Great Quns, Twelve-inch guns, and those of still larger size, can fire ninety full charges only. After that they are sent to the foundry, where they have a new core in serted, and can fire another ninety rounds. By the time a gun has fired 180 rounds (in times of peace) it is practically obsolete. Only eight full charges are fired per annum, for practice halt charges only are used. These ■only wear out the gun one-eighth as much as does a full charge, or even less. Twelve-inch guns fire projectiles weighing about 8501bs, 15 inch guns up to 2C00lbs., and the great 16.25 guns fire a missile weighing just about a ton. A twelve-incn gun will send a pro jectile through three feet of wrought iron at 5000 yards. The latest German 15 inch gun will perforate 42.5 inches of steel at muzzle. All modern ships are perforable inside 8000 yards by 12 inch armour piercing shell. This means that projectiles from the "Australia's" great guns would smash through the heaviest armour at present ...

The annual report of the Rail way Commissioners is very in teresting reading to those who take a keen interest in the State Railways. It shows at a glance how the railways are progressing, both in the development of the State and also in adding luxury to those who live in the more congested centres, while the com fort and convenience oHhose en gaged in the working of the rail ways is very properly not lost siifht of. During the past year the increase in the working ex penses is over a quarter of a million, while the mileage in crease and the gross revenue also show an increase, though not in keeping with the increase in the working expenses. A big loan expenditure is now being made in the direction of electrifying the railways. The railway com missioners have only a limited practical experience in electrical traction power—the St. Kilda and Brighton tramway—and not withstanding the number ...
