Bosnian Croat Army 76mm Artillery Gun
Regimental Sergeant Major Mac Leyland and Corporal Mac McGuiness, 1st Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers took possession of this gun when on peace-keeping duties in Bosnia.

On 6 December 1995 the two Fusiliers came across the gun and its towing vehicle in a ditch, abandoned by its crew after it had come off the road. They hitched it to their Land Rover, and took it back to the Battalion's base, passing through several hostile check points without being stopped.

For your own safety, please do not climb on the gun
