From a signboard in the grounds of the Peak Police Station in 1995.

"This well preserved cannon is over 150 years old. In 1960 workmen demolishing an old buidling near the Peak radio station known as Batty's Belvedere found the gun in the undergrowth. Legend has it that is the same gun that was fired by the Victoria Peak Lookout in the early days of the Colony to signal the arrival of the Mail-boat."
