QF 12-pounder 8 cwt gun

The Ordnance QF 12-pounder 8 cwt was a Royal Navy "landing gun" intended for navy use ashore. "8 cwt" refers to the weight of the gun and breech 8 cwt = 8 x 112 lb = 896 lb. This was how the British differentiated between guns of the same calibre or weight of shell; this gun had a short barrel and was of low power compared to the 12 pounders of 12 and 18 cwt, although it fired the same shells. Fourteen were converted into anti-aircraft guns as Mk I*; the Royal Navy replaced the gun with the 3.7-inch mountain howitzer. The gun was used in the early stages of the Second Boer War in Natal; these guns were employed on land in the West Africa campaign. They were employed in the East Africa campaign; this gun was used in the Battle of Gallipoli, as the Royal Navy had supplies of ammunition for it when the army was short of ammunition for its own guns. Several guns were operated from frontline trenches. There is a surviving example held and maintained at Devonport Field Gun Association Heritage Centre & Museum at Crownhill Fort, Plymouth.

There are three examples at the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets summer training camp at HMCS Acadia in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia. They still fired although they only fire blanks for ceremonial and training purposes. One example is located at HMCS Star in Hamilton, Ontario and is in use by the Hamilton Sea Cadet Corps; this cannon is the type used in the famous British Royal Navy Field Gun Runs. The RN Field Gun may be seen'in action' in the 1957 film "Yangtse Incident", when a group of these guns was used on the banks of the River Orwell to depict Chinese PLA gun batteries on the North bank of the Yangtze, which fired on HMS Amethyst as she steamed up to Nanking in April 1949.

Alcohol intolerance

Alcohol intolerance is due to a genetic polymorphism of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, the enzyme that metabolises ingested alcohol. This polymorphism is most reported in Asian patients, it can be an effect or side effect associated with certain drugs such as disulfiram, metronidazole, or nilutamide. Stuffy nose and skin flushing are the most common symptoms, it may be characterized as intolerance causing hangover symptoms similar to the "disulfiram-like reaction" of aldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency or chronic fatigue syndrome. Severe pain after drinking alcohol may indicate a more serious condition. If people are intolerant, some nearly non-alcoholic beverages may be a problem, similar to alcohol-containing medications, inhalation of alcohol or the vapour of alcohol-containing cleaning agents. Drinking alcohol first or afterwards together with Calcium cyanamide, an inorganic compound used as a fertilizer, can cause permanent or long lasting intolerance, contributing together with other substances to the accumulation of harmful Acetaldehyde by inhibiting the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase.
