You are right, but not correct. It is not infantry mortar, but artillery mortar. And Model 1907 is not correct designation. It was introduced in 1891 and used even in the Sino‐Japanese War of 1894‐95. It is called only 90mm Mortar.

Yes - my first thought when I got up in the morning - "wrote inaccurate data." Now, quickly sat down to improve - but you always awake :wink:
I wrote: "Model 1907" because (I think), in some publications I read, the so called variant, which was used in the I-Go vehicles. But I could have something wrong.

Interesting. Why did they have black faces? :? Moved up early in the night (but if so - why wear white gloves? ...)?
