This is detail from a group shot. What is the equipment behind the gun (and in front of the band-stand!) I assume it is related to the unit pictured?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

In the foreground a 6" 26cwt Howitzer and in the background the carriage of a 9.2" Howitzer.

Thanks very much. (incredibly quick too!)

Here is the whole picture. On the back is written Vimy 23/1/1919

This was taken at the "place" at Vimy. It shows the guns and some of the men of our section of the battery. We didn't have the bandstand with us at the front. Jack
