Design and construction of the
14-Inch naVal gun' on railway mount
ings on the western front was one of
the great accomplishments of the

The gun was designed, built atad

Secretary (Daniels' official report not
a drawing had been started. On
April 25, 1118, a completed-gun was
rolled on its own wheels to Sandy
Hook proving ground for long range
The guns -weM mounted on ' car-

over the French railroads. With
them went their navy crews. Twelve
oars were required for each gun

nltlon'cars, kitchen, 'berthing, crane
and wireless cars. The 'batteries were
sufficiently mobile that if an order
came to move while In action they
could be on their way in an hour.
