    I have come across a reference to a painting "The embarkation of Henry VIII at Dover 1520" which is said to show this ship with a broadside visible but I haven't found a copy to verify this.

      It's there in the Royal Collection Trust.
      I've personally never heard of the "Peter Pomegranate" but I have heard of "Boaty MacBoatface".

          Somebody had to vote for that name. Why not you too.

            She and the Mary Rose marked the move from using converted merchantmen (extra fore and stern castle works added) to purpose built warships. At first she would be armed with built up iron guns - these were breech loaders and could take a smaller less powerful charge than later cannon, they were mounted on truckless mounts and so did not recoil and had no trunnions so could only be used for point blank fire. Later these were replaced with cast bronze muzzle loading cannon which were heavier and did recoil (and were also considerably more expensive). This was the reason for the rebuild. At the same time the use of shrouds and ratlines fastened to channels outboard of the gunwales allowed larger masts and yards to be fitted. These larger masts and heavier guns in basically the same dimensioned hull may have contributed to the Mary Roses fatal instability.
