French 75mm mle/97 at the Douglas MacArthur Memorial for the WW1 Centennial
Permalink   


 

In the last few days the Lovett Artillery Collection French 75mm mle/87 was given on a temporary loan to the MacArthur Memorial Museum in Norfolk, VA to mark the WW1 Centennial.  The 151st Field Artillery was equipped with 75mm guns of this type and served under BG Douglas MacArthur in WW1 while he was the 84th Brigade commander, 42nd Division.  This is the link for the photos of the French 75mm mle/97 at its new home until 2019:

Your collection is justifiably gaining national renown.   I'm sure the staff is impressed with the both the minute restoration you've given that piece and the pleasure of displaying it in their museum.
