Flagpole and Cannons



Flagpoles in front of AOML (December 1972).

Harris Stewart wanted the flagpole in front of AOML to be set up as soon as possible after staff moved to the building. Jack Kofoed took photos of the process and sent them to Stewart who was at sea. By December 1972 before the building’s dedication, they were ready.



The cannons in front of AOML (December 1972).

The cannons in front of AOML were recovered off Barbados in 1968 and had been in storage. Just before the building dedication, concrete gun carriages were completed and the cannons moved to the site and placed in their current location in front of the building on either side of the flag pole.
