Old Tom Posted 4 January , 2011 Share Posted 4 January , 2011 A recent thread in this forum described some of the changes to the 18 pounder field gun. At first glance these seem to be steps towards the 25 pounder, the common field gun of WW2. This train of thought leads to the question; were these changes offered by the manufacturer or were they requested by the military i.e. by a chain of reqeusts from BEF to MGO to Ministry of Munitions. I used to be familiar with the MoD procurement system in the 60s and 70s with the preparation of staff requirements, specifications and so on and have a very shallow appreciation of the relations between the War Office, Ministry of Munitions and Llyod George in WW1. Can anyone describe the process of change of the 18 pounder, or point me towards anything published? Old Tom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
