Gunner W. H Coles with 5.5in Gun
Here we see Gunner W. H. Coles, the winner of the French Croix de Guerre, behind the breach of a British 5.5in Gun, with one of the shells by his side. This picture was probably taken on the Fifth Army front during the Cassino campaign, although Coles' shoulder badge might be a First Army badge from the North African campaign.
