Sir George Darwin finds a possible explanation of these in the screwing motion which the earth would suffer in its plastic state.
Other improvements were: the gun was sighted on each side, tangent scales dropping into sockets in a sighting ring on the breech, thus enabling a long scale for all ranges to be used, and the foresights screwing into holes or dropping into sockets in the trunnions, thus obviating the fouling of the line of sight, and the damage to FIG.
The only mistake was you screwing around with the big boys in the first place.
