Hi Matthew and Guido,

This should make for a neat build. Two nice additional time frame options for the gun. Thanks for looking in.

Hi Matthew and Guido,

I don't have many original pics on the gun but a few I did find on the net for WW1


Firing



Cleaning?



Moving



This is an interesting one being towed by the Holt Tractor.

Hi folks,

Towards the end of this clip some pics of the 6 inch battery in action. Also some good pics of 12 inch railway gun and an interesting shot of 1 days ration for 1 gun! Very useful footage.
