Model 12-pdr QF Gun (1902) at Cornet Castle (Guernsey)

At the turn of the Twentieth Century the Royal Navy was still Britain's first line of defence, even for the Channel Islands. However, a perceived threat was attacks on harbors by fast Motor Torpedo Boats.St. Peter Por, like others, was defended from this threat by the installation of 12-pounder Quick Firing guns. In 1902 two of these weapons were installed on the citadel of Castle Carnet along with two supporting Defence Electric Light (searchlight) positions.
Quick Firing guns used their recoil to return them automatically to their firing position, this saving much time in re-aiming. On the 12-Pounder QF, powerful coil springs and hydraulics were used to effect this process. Since the gun could now be fixed, gunners were able to stay in close and be sheltered by a steel shield.(Scale 1:15).

Visiting the Battery Moltke at Jersey

Battery Moltke is an uncompleted World War II former coastal artillery battery in St Ouen in the north west of Jersey. It was constructed by Organisation Todt for the Wehrmacht during the Occupation of the Channel Islands. The battery structures include bunkers, gun emplacements and the Marine Peilstand 3 tower, which are located on Les Landes, a coastal heathland area at the north end of St Ouen's Bay. Four captured French Canon de 155mm GPF, known as the 15.5 cm K 418(f) by the Germans, were located at Moltke. One of the original guns can be seen there today. These guns could be fully rotated to fire in any direction. They had a maximum range of around 19,500 m. The primary purpose of this battery would have been the defence of St Ouen's Bay in the event of an amphibious assault by the Allies, although Jersey's entire coastline would have been within range of the guns, as would the stretch of water between Jersey and Sark. The photographed toy soldiers are made by Classic Toy Soldiers (CTS) and TSSD.

From 13 February 1945 to 6 May 1945, German troops in Breslau were besieged by the Soviet forces which encircled the city as part of the Lower Silesian Offensive Operation. The German garrison's surrender on 6 May was followed by the surrender of all German forces two days after the battle.
These Wehrmacht soldiers were made by Elastolin in 70s and the 7.5 cm leichtes InfanteriegeschĂĽtz 18 cannon was produced by Elastolin/Hausser in 30s. The street terrain is made by TTCombat.
