Gallia Belgica Posted 15 November , 2013 Share Posted 15 November , 2013 I know of a photograph among others showing an Ordnance QF 13-pounder field gun (due to the shorter barrel length), with a caisson attached behind it. A man clearly wearing three stripes, a sergeant, stands beside it. A 'D' is printed on the caisson in the top left corner and the letters 'E.R.H.A.' and 'Cav.Div.' (Cavalry Division) are printed just above the centre handle. On the back of the photograph, written in pencil, reads - [The gun that fired first round in the war Aug 21 1914]. If anyone has any additional information on this I would be grateful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
