75L11 Japanese Mountain Gun

Excellent little infantry guns by Waterloo 1815, the design dates from 1898

One with shield

and, one without

A couple of pictures of the real deal. This one is at my local (sort of) RSL. We had a few going-away drinks there the other night, and I took these pictures to show you

This one was captured around the Milne Bay area of operations in 1942, and presented to the town in 1946 as part of a collection of field pieces from both wars. Several of the town's men fought in the Pacific theatre during WW2, hence the connection with this one.


  1. Nice one mate. Have a merry xmas cobber.

  2. They're dinky little things aren't they!

    Happy Christmas to you and those around you Al, and all the best in 2016!
