Ordnance, Q.F., 25pdr Mk 2 on Carriage 25pdr Mk 1

The British considered the excellent 25pdr one of the best field guns of
its day.

It didn't fire as heavy a shell as the German and US 105mm howitzers, it
was, however, light, mobile and easy to reposition in combat situations. It also
had excellent range.

It proved invaluable in the desert when the heaver Panzer III and IVs arrived
in North Africa. When the 2pdr proved inadequate for the task, the 25pdr was
able to fill the gap with its excellent anti-tank round until sufficient numbers
of 6pdrs arrived on the scene.

By 1944 it was still the primary artillery weapon of the British and
Commonwealth forces.

It also continued to see occasional action in the anti-tank role, as at
Villers-Bocage when 5 RHA, firing over open sights, destroyed a number of the
German tanks.
The 25pdr gun was capable of firing a wide variety of ammunition, including
smoke, flare, incendiary, propaganda and squash-head shells, as well as the
normal HE, Shrapnel and AP rounds.
