Below. This is a photograph of a battery party. The unit is equipped with 7,7cm lFK 1896 before the recoil system modification was made. The gun’s Range Stake/Aiming Stake is on the floor. In American service, the aiming stakes are always white and red. I believe, in German service the color combinations for the aiming stakes varied. In this way, one gun’s stakes could be distinguished from another. I also saw this to be true of Iraqi Mortar/Artillery aiming stakes (see the 60mm & 82mm mortar pages).
We are looking for German Artillery aiming stakes.
