Old British Cannon in Sagay Camiguin

Written on

In the town square (locally referred to as "quadrangle") of Sagay Camiguin is an early 18th-century British Cannon. It has been identified as the 9-pounder Demi-Culverin Cannon. It was probably left behind after the British occupation of Manila ended in April 1764. It was most likely transported to the island to defend against Moro attacks.
