Lower battery was armed with a 24 sm. British-made guns. Neither the gun's mounting nor the guns itself have not survived to our time, as the Swedes in the process of obsolescence of their fortresses, built new batteries and arming them with old guns. This trunk was brought and inserted into the embrasure in order to give us something to show how it all looked in the old times.
