WWII British Para: Two Inch Mortar Set with Crew – Paras


The 2 inch mortar was developed in 1938 with 500 units being available at the beginning of WW2, it saw service throughout the war with several versions being released over the duration of hostilities. Aiming was simply a matter of pointing the mortar in the direction of the enemy and either lowering or raising the barrel to achieve the desired range. Because of the short length of the barrel no bi-pod was deemed necessary. The 2 inch mortar was finally withdrawn from British army service in the 1980’s and as such could be counted as a very successful design, that gave excellent service throughout its service history. One soldier aims the mortar whilst the second figure waits ready with another round, to be passed over as soon as the first shell leaves the barrel. Limited Edition of 100 Sets.
