Last of Dundee Time Gun

NethergateDundee time gun at least the particular piece of ordnance which for generations has announced to Dundonians the time of day, is silent. It has fired it's last shot. The other day the gun was inspected by a military officer who pronounced it unfit for further service. A new gun probably in the shape of an obsolete 24 pounder which has seen less service will be substituted as soon as circumstances permit.Til that is done the citizens will be without the familiar one o'clock detonation. The discarded gun has a history. It was cast in 1813 and did service on board ship towards the close of the Napoleonic war. For many years it has boomed forth the time at Dudhope Park.
