Condition description:
Notes: First displayed at the bottom of Mater Hill - eventually taken for (unsuccessful) restoration at Fort Lytton. It was
later sold to an South Australian collector and then sold to the Peter Jackson (New Zealand) collection in about 2010. It's an unusual howitzer since it's an sFH13 kurz with an L/17 barrel.(vide Charlie Clelland)
