Re #166 Post 27 Nov 2018 10:46 Based on the extreme step of the gun barrel, I would guess that it is a 100 MM m 1893 gun. I have no reliable info on the model of the carriage however.

My records call this a "240 MM G Mle 1876 SUR AFFRUT Mle 1911" however my knowledge of French Coastal Guns is at best rudimentry, so I could easily be mistaken.

Thank you, ROLAND1369...I am not expert in French coastal artillery either.
In this webpage there are not mention about an 240mm G Mle 1876 Sur affut Mle 1911.... :?

I think none of the guns match...

From further research I believe my previous Identification of the coastal gun has a 95 % the of being correct.
