1 Artillery Battery Position and Forward Observer Position- The Church is the a distant aiming point- See Red Border Captions for Action Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker emplace Loud Speaker Wire Base Gun

2 Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker Loud Speaker Wire Officer with Aiming Circle records a Direction to a Distant Aiming Point Officer with an Aiming Circle Records a Distant Aiming Point Using the Scale

3 Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker Loud Speaker Wire Officer with the aiming circle transfers a known direction to the howitzers Center or Base Gun is laid to match the direction given by the officer with the aiming circle This orientation is passed to the howitzers

4 The Forward Observer Spots a Target Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker Loud Speaker Wire TARGET Forward Observer sees a target and conveys (with the Loud Speaker) to gun line the Guns direction & distance to target

5 Rounds Are Fired Under and Over the Target to Bracket. Once the Target is Hit the Entire Battery Fires on this Data Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker Loud Speaker Wire TARGET Forward Observer sees the explosion of the Base Gun’s Shell. He adjust this howitzer onto target with bracketing. This may take many rounds. Center or Base Gun Fires onto the target as directed by the FO. Once on target, the remaining howitzers fire

6 Forward Observer and a Loud Speaker. The wire between the two points gives a known distance Distant Aiming Point with a surveyed direction Gun Line with an aiming circle and Loud Speaker Loud Speaker Wire TARGET After Observing a Target Hit form the Base Gun, the Forward Observer calls for all Howitzers within the Battery to Fire on the Same Data as the Base Gun Center or Base Gun Fires onto the target as directed by the FO.
