I never fired the 40/60, only the 40/70, and there are differences. That first lever used to open the breech for the first round was IIRC a rotary lever with a snap out wooden handle,and there was a feed lever at the bottom of the ammo hopper to feed in past the pawls. Nice animation though.
Don't forget the Samuri Sword and the No1's tool!

I can't remember anything about a Samurai sword, and we don't like to talk about L/Bdr McGlunchy.



Especially after the incident with the Genny drive belt and his fingers.

It was a long narrow tray you shoved up the back of the gun to remove the round on the loading tray..

The No 1's tool was an L shaped bar that he used to lever a round out of the breech if the extractors ripped through the rim on a misfire..

Held.....!

We used to love getting the plank NIGS to try and jump start a Genny

Can't remember ever seeing the No 1's tool being used for that purpose, but do now remember the sword thingy. We had a round separate just before feeding into the breech, and had to very gently remove the shell, case and lots of propellant granules using that sword. I had the dubious pleasure of carrying the whole damned thing to a safe distance, as I was acting as Troop Officer for that shoot at Manorbier.
