ORDNANCE SOCIETY WEB-SITE DOWN

Apologies if you were trying to access the web-site last night (16/11/2016) or first thing this morning (17/11/2016) and saw a screen saying that the web-site had “recently expired”.

This was caused by the domain host, “WordPress”, failing to successfully e-mail any request for a hosting renewal payment, or to successfully warn of an imminent close-down of the site.

The fee has now been paid and the web-site is back.  A complaint has been lodged with the domain host.

Regards,
Trevor Parker
(Chairman)

The listings have technical details of the guns including calibre, weight, barrel length and maximum elevation, muzzle velocity and range. The listings will be enhanced and expanded over time. See “WW1 ARTILLERY” page.
