Always glad to give any limited help. however always temper my answers with the knowledge that I am much more aquainted with the US coast artillery than French coastal artillery.

Lahitolle, not Latiholle. :wink:

I don't know where the pictures were taken. But the fact that these two guns are mounted on a platform made of wooden beams indicate a "batterie de circonstance" (i.e. an ad-hoc battery) as the most probable or a "batterie de semonce" (i.e. a "warning shot" battery). :idea:
