It's my understanding that this 120 mm Krupp howitzer was actually the one at Surprise Hill which was blown up by the Rifle Brigade on the night of 10th Dec 1899. Certainly the skyline would suggest that. There's a good write-up of the Surprise Hill raid here: surprisehill.blogspot.com/2012/02/1-raid...1011th-december.html
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
