Guessing the navy of Naples and Sicily; there are similar guns in Palermo. Cast-iron? with either VB or an A on one trunnion, dated on the other. Cast in Sweden in Akers for the Italian kingdom.

A hole claimed to be from a musket ball in the wood panelling at Shaw. Unlikely to have been shot at Charles I watching the battle as claimed, but could easily from a stray bullet. Some other possible impact damage on the stone work although nothing I'm 100% convinced by!
