Krupp 11 inch (28cm) "Amiens Gun" Canberra

This gigantic 11 inch (28cm) gun (known as the "Amiens Gun") was part of a German railway gun that was captured by Australian troops in 1918. The barrel was transported to Port Wakelfield in 1942, to serve as an important coastal defence structure. Today, it is part of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
