17 pounder Anti Tank Gun (1)

In the park of the Airborne Museum 3 17 pounder guns can be found that were used during the Battle of Arnhem. This example was used by the 1st Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery R.A. D-Troop at a position near the Old Church in Oosterbeek. Due to technical problems the gun became unserviceable.
