The photos below were of the actual
on the battlefield.
According to Jake everyone
own job to do, such as communications,
gunner, loading the shell then charge,
the breech, and firing.
As the shells were well over 100 lbs it actually
took two men to lift and load the gun.
(There was also the little job of putting
siting markers up range, in the line
of fire so
the gunner could find his distance.)
It got very hot, filled the air with greese and gun
powder, and was very, very loud.
