Long Description:
The 'Ordnance QF 25-pounder' was commonly used by Australia in the Second World War, as it was made in the United Kingdom. While Australia was to later start manufacturing the 25-pounder, that led to a shorter-barreled version, more suitable for off-road deployment typical of Australia. Many of the WW2 field guns also saw service in Korea and the Malayan Emergency.

Nowadays they are frequently seen on display in memorial parks, and outside RSLs. [Wikipedia: 25-pounder]
