Response to Allied artillery at Buna

 

Found this by chance:

At around 18:56 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1F0tbxwXx8) an Aussie wooden-wheeled 3.7-inch howitzer is doing its thing; according to the narrator at Lae, New Guinea, during the Allied invasion of September 1943.

Incidentally, this 1951-vintage series "Crusade in the Pacific" in 24 half hour episodes, is probably the best original footage available on the Pacific war and beats any of the more recent productions.

Regards

Jacques
