A Quad towing a 25-pounder gun in Korea.
Commentary about this image by Bob Jagger
The gunners here were in a difficult position, with the bad angle making the situation precarious. They were trying to work out how they were going to get the tractor Quad and gun over the hilly ground. It didn’t actually tip over!
Most of our Quads were Fords and in this case, the gun was hooked directly to it.
Another thing that not too many people realise is the Royal New Zealand Artillery troops were the first ever be equipped with and to go into combat with the now famous 25-Pounder. We continued to use the gun through the Second World War, Korea and the Vietnam era.
