Where's it at? Looks like one of the pieces brought back from the Spanish American War, something in the 5.5 inch range, IIRC.
Bel-Red road just short of 124th...
Bigger than 75 or 105mm...riveted trails make it pre WWII...my best guess would be M1918 155 GPF - Originaly a French design The gun was designed during World War I by Colonel L.J.F. Filloux to meet France's urgent need for modern heavy artillery, and became the standard heavy field gun of the French Army from 1917 until World War II. It was also manufactured in USA from 1917, after the US switched to metric artillery based on French patterns. It was used by the United States Army and United States Marine Corps as their primary heavy artillery gun under the designation 155 mm Gun M1917 or M1918 until 1942
Isn't that a Howitzer?
