Would someone be able to Identify what type of gun these Canadian soldiers are posing with?

Yes Temujin, I believe you got that right. It looks like the 12 pounder, same carriage tapered to the wheels. Looks like chairs on either side of the gun barrel, same seven rivets on each chair, looks like spring shocks on chairs the same on both, same pipe brace with teeth to dig into the ground to help stabilize during recoil, museum picture has brace folded up for transport mode. Must have been quite a bang when firing. Thanks
