Our Newest Naval Gun The 9.2 in which was to be carried by the King Edward VII.

the restless progress which the production of what an old writer calls "vile guns and villainous saltpetre" continues to make, in spite of all the efforts of peace societies and other praiseworthy agencies, is well exemplified in the above picture. It is difficult to convey in a few simple words any popular idea of this tremendous weapon. Perhaps the best method is to refer to the 4.7 in which became "familiar in our mouths as a household word" in the early days of the war. the above monster is more than twice as good - or, from an enemy's point of view, as bad - as the 4.7 in, for it embodies still later ideas of skilled and scientific construction.

Extract taken from the Army & Navy Illustrated May 10th 1902.

They seized Alexandria form the Mameluke ruler Ibrahim who fled into Syria.  But the Mameluke military Commander Murad Bey was determined to stop Napoleon entering Cairo, so blocked the French advance at Embabeh on the left bank of the Nile near the pyramids.  Under his command he had 40,000 troops but only 6,000 of these were the fierce fighting force of Mamelukes. On July 21st napoleon moved onto the Egyptian positions and Murad launched an all out attack with his cavalry.  But the 6,000 Mamelukes were no match for the French infantry and artillery which fired volley after volley, devastating the Mamelukes.  When the charge had failed the disorganized Egyptian infantry fled.  With only 300 casualties, Napoleon marched into Cairo.
