Hi all, I was just wondering about how many gun numbers were assigned to the 17-pounder (towed). Wikipedia says "5-6" which is a little unconvincing. (Why any variation?) From looking at a couple of Canadian war establishments, there seem to have been 9 men in a section, but that included a driver. And then again I looked at a WE from Italy and there the organisation is per section of two guns, I think, so the breakdown would be a bit different. But I suspect a drill booklet would have specified a set number of men.
