Greek Soldiers  manning a ( captured?) Brixia Mortar.  The Brixia Model 35 was an Italian small-sized, rapid firing light mortar of World War II.  The Brixia was a complicated weapon and it was costly and lengthy to produce, but, in the hand of skilled operators was superior to other WW2 mortars and could lay down very precise and intense curtains of fire.
