aerial photograph of BL 5.5-inch medium field guns on Garrison Roundabout Telford Shropshire. The BL 5.5-inch medium gun was introduced into the British Army during World War 2 and had its first major engagement at El Alamein. The gun continued in use after the war until 1980 with the very last 5.5 inch ammunition being fired in 1995. These three preserved examples were placed on Garrison Roundabout to mark Telford connection with the military and in particular the adjacent MoD Donnington.
