What types of firearm are generally banned from ships under UK legislation?

All handguns which are part of ship’s equipment, other than signalling apparatus. (In other words, a line-throwing pistol is not banned. ) 

Large calibre handguns have been banned since 1 July 1997 and small calibre handguns have been banned since 1 February 1998.
