Default Australian 2pdr

Well on my search for anything 2 pounder I have managed a swap for a very nice Australian barrel and ring which is currently live and on my FAC .
The inside of the Barrel is in perfect condition and has a nice shine.
On the barrel it has the General Motors Holdens South Australia emblem nicely etched.
It has the 5 steps in it so I was assuming it was from the land carriage,does anyone know if this profile was used in turrets ?

Need to find some more bits for it !

I think Most Matilda gun tanks had a stepped barrel towards the end of conflict possibly after the original vickers tapered barrels wore out !

Kind Regards

Thanks for that Matt, I thought it would have been a standard local pattern replacement part but its always a good thing when it can be confirmed by a Local !

Cheers
