How Many Howitzers Can You Get In A Herc?

This is from the images disk. Probably at Lyneham. Load in view is 6 x 105mm Pack Howitzers. They were replaced by the 105mm Light Gun in 1980 so this photo must have been taken in the 70s.

"F Troop" in Halfar, Malta 1970

Left to Right:  Dave Barton,  Don Wickham, Pete Chappell, George Lynes and Tony Gale.  We took the Landrover, "88AA81" seen on the right, all over the world with us.  Tony remembers the wise words from Sgt "Dinty" Moore during his Air Movements training course - "Always carry a tin of matt green paint in your Landrover, so that when you get a scrape on it you can cover it up quickly!"

Finishing touches to a Sea King load, RAF Brize Norton, November 1973.  I'm assuming it's a Sea King as the tail rotor has been 'hinged' inwards as they do whilst at sea.
