Artillery on Victory Green

This is a fascinating picture showing three pieces of artillery being prepared to be fired on Victory Green in Stanley. It is not clear when the photograph was taken but if it were regular British army then it is pre or early World War One by the caps. However, if it is the Falkland Islands Defence Force it could even be post-World War One. It is also unclear as to whether they are practicing or preparing ceremonial shots to be fired.
