WW1 Memorial, Bethlehem Steel 37mm
Permalink   


Last year or so I came across this restored Bethlehem Steel 37mm gun serving as a WW1 memorial in the Hopkinsville, Kentucky city cemetery.  This is the same type of gun the French tested as a potential anti-tank gun and rejected.  Thought you all might be interested in seeing it!

I also have a number of detail/close-up shots, if anyone is interested.
