Post subject: Vietnam 155mm Howitzer Display

Hi All,

Over the years I expect you have all seen my Wanted Adverts for 155mm Howitzer items as well as general Artillery equipment? Well I thought it was time for you to see what I do with all the stuff I collect.

Please see below some photos from my Vietnam Artillery Display held at the 2012 & 2013 War and Peace Show here in England. This years display was dedicated to Mr Larry tesh of The 1/92nd Field Artillery who served during the Vietnam War.

The unit sign in the photos is copied from one of his orignal photographs taken at Fort Bragg, North Carolina the year before he was deployed to Vietnam.
I hope you enjoy them

As always I'm still on the look out for anything related to the US 155mm Howitzer to make my displays bigger and better. These items can be tools, canvas items, equipment, cleaning brushes etc etc.

Do any of our members know any Artillery dealers or have items for sale themselves ??? They can be from WW2 , Korea and Vietnam

Thank you

Nice pics, Maverick..

I notice boresighting index marks on the muzzle, so presumably this was done the same way as on tanks of the era. How was viewing from the breech end accomplished...through a firing pin hole or was there an optical adapter or device inserted at the breech end to view through?

Hi There,
From what I understand they used a bore sight which was put into the breech end and used to view through.
