QF 6pdr Airborne


Recommended Posts

At Adrian's (Le Prof) suggestion I have re-posted this in the Artillery section.

This was a fragment of an ID plate found on a local former tank range. The site is off the impact area and I believe it's where scrapping took place.

The text appears to read -

6 AT III

/41

Adrian suggests this refers to Ordnance QF 6pdr Airborne, A/Tank gun MkIV on Carriage Mk III, built 1941. Can anyone confirm this please?

Hi Matt,

 

I do not know if that dataplate is 6Pdr or not as the plates that I have seen for 6Pdr's have "6PR", not "6AT". It may be something else? Unless the different countries labeled them differently as I think the only ones I've got pictures of are Canadian?
