Long Description:
From a plaque on site:

Reserve artillery units used the C2 105mm Howitzer, a mobile, general-purpose weapon that is towed by a truck and has a seven-person crew. Howitzers normally fire at long range (up to 11 kilometres) against targets invisible to the naked eye ("indirect" fire), but can also be used in a "direct" fire mode against closer targets. This particular gun retired from the Canadian Forces in 1998, after firing 13,624 rounds.
