When I was a 13B especially at Sill. The Gun and Cat were kept sep. We had times where the Gun was on one side of a hill and the Cat on the other and we had to hump rounds sometimes 100m.

Just a coment but after a little googling that round the figure us carrying seems to weigh in around 100 Pounds. He seems to be carrying it a bit easily. I admit when I was 40 years younger lifting and carrying 100 pounds was a lot easier than today but is this how the rounds are handled?
