The 37 mm guns carried by the Gouvernements Marine schepen were not modern guns. These were revolver guns, carried by these ships for police purposes, built before 1890!

PS Hans, would be most interested to know your source for the order of the 40 mm guns. I can't recall reading about these details before. Thanks ...
