Jacques,

Speaking for myself, I’ve been assuming bore wear from heavy firing, but perhaps the bores were just fine, and ‘twas other stuff that was well worn: breech mechanisms, elevating and traversing gears, panoramic sights, trail parts, etc. Still, one would need to ‘splain where and how this wear occurred, given the finite number of places where New Zealand Army forces had served and come away from with guns and heavy equipment intact. For example, until the Yanks got into the fray and were able to ease some military obligations, the Kiwis had a sizable garrison in the Fiji Islands, but nothing of any significance happened there. Okay, I’m grasping at straws in seeking an explanation for this previous heavy wear in the mountain howitzers.
