Response to And another high-speeded 75mm field gun in the Far East

 

Did not know it was used in Singapore, thanks.

Britain received them during WW2 and duly sent a number over to the Jordan Arab Legion that used them portee on trucks. You can find several pics on the net. At least one of the guns was seen on a (Syrian) French tank chassis 1948.

Colombia (from the Canal Zone) also received them early 1940 as well as Haiti. You can find pictures of the gun in both countries (now with different wheels).

There is also a nice 1941 picture of this gun in a California military camp.

PS no response from CharlieC.
