    17 pdr Anti-Tank Gun guarding the Nijmegen Bridge.​


    These large towed guns were not as satisfactory as the SP version for the quick actions required in an advance, although they were good in defence, as here. As a result both of 21st AT Regiment's towed batteries were converted to infantry before the Rhine crossing. In this picture a Hotchkiss machine gun can be seen in the foreground, and the sergeant with the binoculars appears to have borrowed an American helmet.
