Stokes Trench Mortar - 3 inch

The Stokes Trench Mortar was developed by an Englishman, Sir Wilfred Scott-Stokes who was the managing director of Ransome & Rapier of Ipswich, England a mechanical engineering firm. Although Stokes did not have a military background, he quickly grasped the need for a "portable gun" who could keep up with the German Minenwerfer soon after war started in Europe. Stokes correctly reasoned that such a weapon would be valuable for reducing the deadly machine gun nests that were beginning to wreak much havoc on the Western Front. Stokes had a working prototype of his trench mortar ready for testing in December of 1914, barely four months after the war started.
