Hello, thank you for your information.
According to the source, the gun was used by French in Indochina and was taken by Vietminh in 1945. Could it be a coastal artilley purchased from USA by French? I have taken a look in here but found no mention about US made coastal gun: http://www.fortiff.be/iff/index.php?page=i14

The above picture was taken at Pointe Saint-Mathieu in the French Brittany region. The monument is the national memorial for the sailors who lost their lives for France and still stand todays. The two guns are also still in position, one having lost its shield.
