    Or at least what my late father used to call them in Malaya in the late 40's / early 50's.

    The gun is the old Tamiya kit with some tweaks / updates, the limber is from Bronco, with the figures being a mix of Bronco 25 pdr crew set and RIICH Model 3" Mortar Team in NWE set. The base is from MiniArt and yes the door diagonals are the wrong way around.

    Cheers

    Once saw Harry Secombe on the Michael Parkinson show talking about his war experiences. He was in a 25pdr crew, and described them as 'five mile snipers'.
