Contemporary film from Britain of the then new 2-pounder anti-tank gun (40mm).

Note that the drill includes firing both from the 360 degree traverse tripod OR from firing it with the wheels still fitted. This latter is the emergency firing action sometimes called a 'crash action' drill in Royal Artillery parlance.

The AWM have a handful of early war British films on those lines, ones for the Bren gun, the 3-inch mortar and the Rifle Platoon in the attack coming to mind. Also two on the Universal carrier, one for tactical handling and another for its mechanics.

@Starfury Rider

I recently put the Universal Carrier/2-inch mortar film on FaceBook's Bolt Action group.
