Remembered Today:

British Artillery Identification Request

Recommended Posts

I have had this picture for a while and been trying to identify the exact type of gun that the troops are standing in front of.

I have tried comparing it with examples in some books I have but have no luck so far.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Perhaps a 9.2inch railway gun?

Need an expert on heavy British Artillery

In for a penny! Railway mounted as part of carriage seems to appear behind the sgt on the left and over the heads on the right. Barrel too short for a gun? Suggest 12" how.

British 12" MkV howitzer on traversing mount railway carriage.

Probably 1918, as the MkVs only entered service in late 1917.

I agree 12" BL MKV Railway Howitzer.

so that also probably links this to not many more than about 20 RGA Siege Btys equipped with these... usually two to a battery.. is that right?
