|Notes||The 25 pounder answered the needs for a weapon that could be used as a field and a howitzer. The 18/25 pounder served as an interim weapon and many were lost when the BEF evacuated from France, leaving the army short on field artillery. The new version was introduced which combined a new box trail designed by Vickers which came with its own firing platform. This platform gave the gun a 360° traverse which was useful if firing at moving targets. The original barrels stayed the same at 87mm and the gun was called the 25 pounder Mk.2 on Mk.1 carriage. And this became to standard field piece found in both British and Commonwealth field regiments.|
