Have you seen a whole plate of 75mm rounds for wz.1897 from Polish military manual? If not, I can upload it.

Every of this battalion was very weak –there only of 6 guns (3 150-mm howitzers and 3 105-mm cannon) in each. It is not enough to make a good artillery barrage on the battlefield in each case.
I see in the diagrams of the ammunition there are two types of Granat projectile, shown as Ryo 6 & Ryo 7. I am guessing those were designed for penetrating concrete and similar hardened targets? (...) Perhaps both the Plish and US designs were derived from a earlier French pattern?

75 mm : 12 battalions (41, 42,48,50,58,59,62, 64,67,71,75, 81dal)
100-mm : 3 Battalions (65, 68,71,78 dal)
A total of 15 light artillery battalions NWW?
42 dal was changed from 100 mm to 75 mm in May 1939?
