on hwy 17 heading east to Ottawa 21 Jan 2016
« on: January 21, 2016, 19:04:10 »
On my way  home today I happened to see one of the new replacement trucks for the MLVW ( not sure of the new name) towing a trailer, a quick glance as it was going the other direction. I saw what  looked like small gun on the trailer. It was not a 105mm but looked more WW2 vintage from size of it, smaller than the 25 pounders seen at some bases as gate guards.
Anyone see this or know what I saw?

Did it look like this, which is out front of the Petawawa Legion?

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Petawawa+Legion/@45.9042925,-77.2860159,3a,30y,104.05h,89.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sywwPFZvByxTk5KtZjn41Uw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xd09f917e1dc40c78!6m1!1e1

I saw it sitting in the parking lot there at lunch, but forgot to check if it was still there when I drove by after work.

Well if it was not a 105mm then it was something that is out of service and there are hundreds of possabilites at that point. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
