Thought I'd post this pic that I came across in 'Anti Aircraft Guns' by Peter Chamberlain and Terry Gander (1975), showing the AA on the Gothic line. AA guns were in demand for this role by the US troops because of its range. The amount of ammo lying around is indicative of the engagements undertaken. 76th HAA who were in the front line here from July 44 to April 45 fired 112,819 rounds, which equates to 1,100 3 ton trucks to shift these, which was rarely less than a 50 mile round trip, in trucks that in many cases originated from the 'Torch' invasion of North Africa in December 42. As an aside, I'd be interested to know where the original of this image is held. I've drawn a blank on the internet so far, and am unable to identify it at IWM - so if anyone recognises it and its source I'd welcome your assistance!
