Randy Harvey [HARV] found this English Falcon cannon at Cheyenne Air Force Base. It was captured in the Philippines during the Philippine–American War.

I am glad that I stopped and took pictures of this cannon and the bells when I did. I had been going to stop and look at the Bells of Balangiga for years and never did. At a spur of the moment decision while driving by one day I decided to stop and look at them and get some pictures of them. I am glad that I did as they were returned to the Philippines the next year. If I hadn't stopped that day I would have never seen them.
