Default 3" 20cwt AA gun

We appear to have achieved a good start to the 3.7 AA gun thread so now lets try the interwar 3"gun i am aware they were still in service in 1943 but then seemed to disappear were they with drawn into reserve or scrapped. I am certain i have seen evidence that some were still in general use in the far east untill 1945
