Norwegian 1940 Gun Trucks

Post by David Reasoner » 04 Jun 2019, 16:54

As requested elsewhere on the forum, a couple of photos of Norwegian gun trucks from the 1940 campaign.

First, an ex-naval 37mm (1-pdr) Hotchkiss revolving cannon being inspected by a German soldier:

The second is another ex-naval piece, a 65mm Cockerill with a damaged muzzle, perhaps the result of being spiked before capture:

Interesting. Now thinking of ways of adding one to my 28mm Norwegians.

Cheers Fred.
