    Default Anti-tank gun relic from Syrmian Front

    I'm not very much familiar with WWII anti-tank weaponry, but I managed to identify this one as British QF6 pounder. Am I correct? It is situated in the Syrmian village of Susek, on the right bank of Danube. Syrmian Front saw very fierce and bloody fighting from fall 1944 to spring 1945. This gun was probably used by the Soviets or Yugoslav Partisans, acquired through US-USSR lend-lease program.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Agree, it does look like a 6 pounder. UK gift to the Valiant Soviets I expect, as Britain sent them lots of military equipment.

    Appears to be a 6-pounder with an unusual barrel brake.
