The Ordnance Muzzle Loading 4.2” mortar was first developed by the British during World War Two to supplement the existing stocks of 2” and 3” mortars.
The ML 4.2” mortar served the British forces well during the war and it continued to serve well into the post-war years with both British Army and numerous foreign nations around the world. One such nation was Jordan, who fielded the ML 4.2" mortar against the Israeli Defence Force during the Six-Day War.
