Here are some of my pictures of the 6-pdr AT Gun on display as a monument at Heelsum, The Netherlands. As you can see it is the Airborne version. The 16" wheels are a later addition, it seems the German nicked all the wheels they could scrounge off the battlefield when finally departing home in 1945!

This 6pdr is located in a diorama that is located in the basement of Airborne museum Hartenstein

The set-up of the diorama is to look like a night-fight so there was allmost no light to take the picture
That also explains why the picture is rather shaky

Next time I will take some drinks to get a steady hand
