I have quite a few pictures from Duxford, resulting from a visit in 2014 and another in 2016.
I still miss proper identification for a few vehicles.

Is this a kind of Scammel or the like?

Only 12 of these guns were built, and the three batteries equiped with them were sent to the German colonies in Africa.
