You Won’t Believe The Awesome Way This Retired Army Captain Protects His Home


Paul Davis, a retired British Army captain was sick and tired of people leaving their cars blocking his driveway while they went to the store. Many home owners would have had a quiet word with the offending drivers or perhaps even called the cops however Mr Davis had other ideas on his mind. He installed a cannon in front of his house. As carrying a handgun is illegal in the U.K. he had to think out of the box!


Accompanying the cannon is a scary sign topped with a WWII helmet.The ex Royal Engineer has struck on a plan which works!

You didn't think that cannon was real did you? Made from wood, it's actually an old TV prop from the series Hornblower.



Mr Davis is proud of his cannon which has become a landmark to the locals in Charlton, South London!
