Scottish Field - - ANTIQUES -

A naval gun from one of the world’s most fa­mous his­tor­i­cal ships has sold for £17,000 at Thom­son Rod­dick sale­room in Dum­fries. Be­lieved to be from the HMS Bounty, the gun was ex­pected to sell for £5,000 to £10,000. It was be­ing sold as part of the es­tate of busi­ness­man Peter Kaye, who died last year. The HMS Bounty was part of a mutiny in 1798, which later sank with four of the guns, which were re­cov­ered later. One of them made its way to Scot­land in 1913.
