Y'know, I am tempted. Especially now I've seen Tim's great standards.
I'd go for the QF 3.7-inch mountain howitzer, as it's the smallest wheeled field-piece in use by the British during WW2 - it had a fairly long service career from introduction in 1917 and was used in North Africa, Italy, Netherlands and Burma campaigns during WW2 (and seen in use in Germany late-'44/'45).
From the same historic 'screw gun' development family-tree, I could also go for the smaller 10-pounder mountain gun, but these appear only in use with the poorer Commonwealth counties by WW2 and so wouldn't really be in period use...
