Apparently, it was the last thing the builder expected to find.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Very cool. Of course the breech block is still intact...

German WW I guns seem to be scattered all over the planet. I recently received a request from Australia concerning a German howitzer. I learned that dozens of German guns are on display over there. There´s a website listing the locations of all captured guns I´ll see if I can find it again.

I think you are correct.

 

I think you will like this.  In the US we have a TV show called Expedition Unknown.  In this episode the host "discovers" to German howitzers at the bottom of a lake in Namibia.  Of course, I think his local guides knew they were there all the time.

Presumably they were looking for a cache of gold hidden by German forces, but I thought this was just a cool.
