Cannon Association of South Africa (CAOSA)

We are a small band of enthusiasts who are determined to stop the loss and decay of the muzzle loading cannons which form a part of our national heritage.

The cannons have been ignored by state bodies unless they came off specified wrecks or were involved in one of the nations more emotional military encounters. Some cannons were already obsolete before Jan van Riebeeck was born, but by their nature cannot compete with distressed wildlife for attention, research, preservation and funding.
