Davis Gun firing demonstration news reel clip


#1

On the British Pathe news reel site, there is a very short news reel segment, vintage late WW1 or shortly thereafter, showing the demonstration firing of 2 Pdr (?) and 6 Pdr (?) Davis guns.

The 2 Pdr (?) is fired from the shoulder at the end of the segment.

Below the news reel video segment are still shots taken from the news reel footage.

Did artillery crews usually have a dog mascot?

In the second part did you notice that the person delivering the powder had a cigarette in his mouth ???

Thank you
I really enjoyed watching that clip
