cas·ca·bel (ksk-bl) n. 1. A rounded projection behind the breech of a muzzleloading cannon. Spanish origin.

 

Artillery use. After 1800 AD, it became adjustable. The breech is closed in large calibres by a CASCABEL(E) screw, which is a solid block of forged wrought iron, screwed into the breech coil until it pressed against the end of the steel tube.

 

The Publication. The Association publishes a journal each quarter. It is distributed in colour to members via Australia Post, and also uploaded here as a PDF file. The name 'CASCABEL' was put forward by the first editor, Lieutenant Colonel Rob Gaw, and accepted because of its unique and obvious Artillery connection.
