    Looking for the Table of Authorization for a gun crew of the 240mm American howitzer during WWII. From what I saw it was a 12 man gun (may be correct number, not sure) but don’t know the names of the positions. v/r Brian

    Happen to have a link to the make-up of a 240mm Howitzer Battalion?
    Trying to see where the 475 pax that make up the Battalion are assigned.
    I see that each Bn has 6 guns with 24pax per gun (144pax), but don't know the make-up of the Crane section, the Cooks, Motor Pool, Bn HQ, Srvc Btry, etc..

    Appreciate any help you can provide.
