Here is an item I found in a box of WW II era paperwork items. This is a students learning criteria paper for the 105 mm Howitzer, M1A1, M2 & M2A1.
As you can see, the student made several notes in red pencil.
Here is a little background info:
“The M2 and M2A1 howitzers were the workhorse field artillery for the U.S. Army in WWII. More than 8,500 were produced during the war. In 1943, a typical infantry division had 54 howitzers."
“One out of every five shells fired by the U.S. Army during the war was 105mm high explosive round. It weighed 42 pounds and was "semi-fixed," meaning it was supplied as a complete round but the shell could be removed from the case and the number of the seven propelling charges could be adjusted for range. The howitzer was manned by a crew of eight and was normally towed by a 6x6 2½ ton truck."
enjoy
