The Maxim-Nordenfelt Q.F. 14 pdr round shown was recently discovered and purchased from the Chanter Estate Military Museum in Moama, NSW.
Given that only two guns existed that took the 14 pdr fixed round ammununition, it follows that the round shown is from the guns used on board Cerberus.
The 14 pdr round's purchase was sponsored by the Antique Arms Collectors Society of Australia, Marie Epstein, the Port Melbourne Historical Society and John Short.
