I am surprised that this hasn't hit the topic. Not in the field but on the factory floor from the Canadian WWII era definitive issue.

Here is an image of a stamp depicting Turkish field artillery in action at Sudd ul Bahr in 1915, during the Battle of Gallipoli, printed by typography, and issued by Turkey in 1916, Scott No. 420. Note: The principal weapon depicted on the stamp appears to be a German-made Krupp 7.5 cm Model 1903 howitzer (photo), but I am certainly no expert on guns.
