Default 2-pdr and 20mm photos wanted

I am looking for WWII era colour photos that show either a 2-pdr or a 20mm. These will be used for the covers of two separate booklets on these weapons. I wil also consider modern photos of restored guns if no contemporary photos are available.
In addition, I am always looking for WWII and post-war photos of these weapons, in black & white, for use in illustrating the text.

Clive

Default Archives photo

Thanks John
The photo is originally from DND's Photo Unit and I used this for the cover of "Tools of the Trade". I need another shot for a Weapons of War booklet which will address just the 20mm AA gun.

I do have several private pictures of Dave's Polsten in various stages of dismount and he does have a heap of the (original) training, maintenance and operation manuals if its of any help.

Not a colour pic, but still interesting I think.
