Photos in action

As best we can make out, and if these photos are of Gun 3, Jake believes from left to right Stebner at the gunnery position, A. Machado at the breech pulling the lanyard, and Jake the forth over. Not sure of the rest.

Jake wanted to point out in the three pics just below you can the back end of a shell resting on a plate with handles. That was the loading barrel and it had handles on both sides for two to put it in the breech. Another would pick up the pole and ram it in, and make room for the charge. After closing it was ready to fire.
