Response to afterthought

 

Not sure if this link was ever shared on this forum, but landing guns have been discussed here before.

http://www.cannonsuperstore.com/1911mark7.html

Note this 3 inch US Navy landing gun of 1911 for sale in Austrlia a while ago, apparently from a load of such guns that had been acquired by KNIL or had been intended for them in 1942. The link suggests that the whole lot of US 1911 landing guns (how many were that?) was acquired by the Dutch (this must have gone through the Netherlands Purchasing Commission), but ended up in Australia after the fall of Java (like a lot of other stuff). It may have served in local forces in Australia?
Glad to hear your thoughts...
