Interesting find in an open barn - WW2 Japanese 47mm type-1 anti tank gun

Article about: Went to pick my son up from Scout camp and found this in an open barn!? I didn't recognise it, however, a bit of internet research and I think it is a WW2 Japanese 47mm Type 1 anti tank gun

    I would love to know the history of that !!

    I reckon smuggled back by a member of the 14th Army in his kit bag

    I have a 40'X60 barn you could store it in I guess customs would be the big buzz kill

    If whoever owns it currently knew what it was and its rarity, it would be better preserved and stored-still could be a 'cold war' bringback as the Red Chinese used large amounts of the Japanese equipment captured at the end of WW2 as well as from the Nationalists during the civil war afterwards and various other guerrilla groups throughout SE Asia would also have had access to ex Jap stuff.
