Posing with their officer is the crew of a Royal Artillery howitzer - an Ordnance BL 6 inch 30cwt howitzer - in their emplacement.
While the various gunners wear a variety of head gear m
ostly the ubiquitous slouch hats and one foreign service helmet, the officer wears the newer style Wolseley Helmet. The
black armband that he wears is probably in memory of Queen Victoria who died in 1901.
