    That's a 5.5-inch breech-loading gun.
    Not a 3.7 - see markings on ammo box at the end!

    This film is of the 79th Scottish Horse Regiment in Europe, my father is in this footage he can be seen moving the gun fourth from the left at between 25 -35 seconds also at 55 seconds carrying a artillery shell ,so if there is any more footage from the reel this clip was taken from I would be most interested in viewing and purchasing a copy as you could probably imagine.my father always told us he was filmed in ww2 and its taken me years to try and find a copy just sad he's not here to see it but also so happy ive got a copy of the film with my dad aged just 23
