The Defence of Looe
For the port of Looe there has been a new fortification raised, and three 24-pounders are mounted and point through their embrasures to the mouth of the harbour. Sergeant Anderson, of the Maker Artillery, has the place
in his care, and there is a Volunteer Corps of 59 stalwart Comishmen who, in two or three weeks, weather permitting, will take their place at the great guns. This is a good corps for so small a population.
