Original – A British 60 pounder Mk I battery in action on a cliff top at Cape Helles, Gallipoli, possibly in June 1915. The unit might be the 90th Heavy Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery, located forward of Hill 114.
Outstanding picture quality for the time (1915), you can even see the nickname given to the cannon clearly on the barrel with zoom.

  • Support per nominator. The quality of this image is remarkable for the time and it has very strong EV given it provides what looks like a very realistic depiction of one of these guns in combat. Nick-D (talk) 00:19, 27 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
