Don - an idea for the Patton Museum...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Isnt that gun mount at the VWMM from a Mk VIII International?

IIRC the earlier ones had a taller pedestal?

Dunno.... VWM identifies it as a

"Tank Cannon
Mk II, 6-pounder Hotchkiss
Enfield Ordnance Company
United Kingdom
World War One"

When I posted this pic on the old board, David Reasoner replied that:

"I recall that the original Mk.I tank had a longer-barrel version of the 6-pdr, adapted from obsolete naval guns. The gun was shortened on later tanks to prevent the muzzle end from getting rammed into the dirt during trench crossing. This may be where the Mk.II designation comes in, the original longer gun possibly being the Mk.I. As a side note, surplus 6-pdr Mk.II tank guns were reissued during WW2 for use on armed merchant ships and some motor launches. Thus completing the cycle of naval gun to tank gun back to naval gun."

Either way, it's nice to know that someone actually read and remembered one of my posts! Laughing

David

P.S. Unfortunately, I can't provide any enlightment on the 6pdr. mountings either, unless you are interested in the naval ones.
