The Ordnance BL 60-pounder was a British 5 inch
(127 mm) heavy field gun designed in 1903-05 to provide a new capability
that had been partially met by the interim QF 4.7 inch Gun.
It was designed for both horse draft and mechanical traction and
served throughout the First World War in the main theatres.
It remained in service with British and
Commonwealth forces in the inter-war period
and in frontline service with British and South African batteries until 1942
being superseded by the BL 4.5 inch Medium Gun.
Total wartime production was 1,773 guns (i.e. barrels) and 1,397 carriages
