German gun trophy
A book called Memories of Shilbottle: Millennium Edition, which seems to have no author, publisher or date of publication has on page 23 the following:
"The Council wished to acquire a German trophy for Shilbottle. It was agreed that a captured German gun, if possible, one captured by the "Northumberlands" would serve as a memento of the Great War."
