On the left



#2

Obviously a Norwegain made one by Bakelittfabrikken.


#3

Pack Howitzer M1?


#4

Made for US M101 howitzers in Norwegian service.


#5

M101 is 105mm. This says 75mm.


#6

Yes, but the Norwegian guns were converted to 75 mm for this purpose.


#7

I found this on Wikipedia

Two M2 howitzers (1942) are still employed in providing the gun salute at Kristiansten Fortress, in Trondheim, Norway. M101/M2 is one of three approved salute guns in the Norwegian armed forces, and have been reduced to a caliber of 75 millimetres (3.0 in) for this purpose. They are used for gun salute also at Rena and Setermoen.
