British Medium Artillery Regiments in 1940
A medium regiment had a headquarters and two batteries. Each battery had 8-6in howitzers or 8-60pdr guns (5in). New 4.5in guns were produced using the 60pdr carriage, on an interim basis. The regiment had about 650 men with 68-pistols, 117 rifles, 10-light machine guns, and 9-anti-tank rifles. All artillery was pulled by tractors at this stage.
