Looking for "Skinny Liz"

Hi. I read a small article that mentions a Artillery gun with the nickname SKINNY LIZ, apparently used to great effect at the battle of Trekkopjes 26.April 1915 knocking out several enemy guns. Does anyone have any more information on this Gun.

Many thanks Michaeldr for the information. Never mind the ammunition pass the hob knobs.
