The Guns themselves were removed for scrap for the War effort on the 22nd June 1940. The stone tablets were later moved to Victoria Park on demolition of the station, they remained there forgotten, until they were rescued in 2004 and situated in Queen's Gardens to mark the 150th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Sebastopol in 1854
