WW1 Hotchkiss 1917 75mm Deck Gun From Torpedoed Ship

The gun came up in a trawl net some years ago and was released by maritime salvage.
From the merchant ship SS Saint Andre a 2457 ton steamer built in 1907.
She was torpedoed 19th December 1917 by the UB-58 commanded by the now famous Werner Fürbringer.
Solid condition but in need of blasting and painting.
The pattern of deck mount is known a crinoline and will need some repair but would make a remarkable display.
This particular U Boat captain had a long career up into WW2 so lots of research possible on that side.
£3,500.
