Bronze plated : a mouth pat is a stopper closing the mouth of a piece of artillery, made of wood, metal or rubber, and which protects it from moisture, spray and sea bags.

Originally, the cannons of the line ships were protected because they were returned by the ports between each use. The invention of the movable turrets from which the cannons exceeded exposed the guns to the elements permanently. The mouth was sealed between each use by a stopper first of wood, then of metal or rubber. The modern mouthpieces are designed so that one can pull through in case of emergency.

The mouths of the large buildings were engraved with the coat of arms of the unit, and these objects became, in the course of time, objects of wartime naval tradition. They are prized by collectors, and even units that do not carry artillery (like submarines) nevertheless have their own symbolic mouth tag.
