Try this Dutch site (it's in English) and there are sections on weapons.

Collar insignia for coastal artillery: crossed artillery shells in bronze metal for privates and corporals, in yellow thread for NCOs, in gold thread for officers (http://www.leger1939-1940.nl/photo-gall ... _ka?full=0 and http://www.leger1939-1940.nl/photo-gall ... embleem003).

Insignia on sidecap for field artillery: regimental number in orange lacquered metal.

You're welcome. For the sake of completeness I should add that horse artillery (the Dutch equivalent of the RHA) also wore the crossed cannon as collar insignia. Insignia on sidecap: lion (from the Dutch coat of arms) in orange lacquered metal. Gold piping on officers' sidecaps, no piping on ORs' sidecaps. No piping on collar and cuffs, yellow piping on officer's breeches.
