105 Howitzer

105mm Howitzer, similar to the ones I was trained on. The old 25 Pounders were just being replaced by the 105 and 155 Howitzers back in 1964 when I went through the training school. We had a 7 man crew trained to sit on one knee at prescribed positions. Quite unlike the rather cassual approach of these more recent soldiers. Certainly not Dutch by the look of them.
