Kanone B, erste Backbord-Kanone
Explanation:
Donald, this is a question, nobody can really answer without seeing a drawing or illustration. The only thing that I can imagine that instead of numbering the guns, they used the alphabet, which means that the "gun B" is probably the first port side gun.

But this is just a keen guess :-)

Hope this idea helps
