no-one has mentioned the gunsight, which was a variation of the Revi reflector sight. Here in Ireland, we had the British L36 Bofors with wire ring sight and reflector sights and the later modern L70s bought from the Dutch.

I think tere are the guns crew and a couple of men from another gun. They have just pulled the gun to position.
