Yes, for the gun on the left. But the other AA gun on the forefront is a 75 mm CA Mle 1930.

Yes, this picture is part of a series that was auctioned first on ebay in March 2014. You could see in particular a "D" painted on the tube on one of the pictures. EBay's caption (so with all the precautions necessary for its accuracy) mentioned the location as an airfield around Ostende in Belgium.

I am trying to obtain information about French 37mm automatic AA guns and their ammunition.

I have put together what I know so far, in an article here: http://quarryhs.co.uk/37mmFrench.pdf

If anyone has any corrections or additions, or answers to my questions, I would be very pleased to receive them!

This one was former AA used by French in Indochina from 1940 to 1945. The barrel is original while other parts are reconstructed. Do you have any idea which type is it?

My best guess is a 75 MM m1922-24 naval aa gun, most likely salvaged from the wreck of the French light cruiser Lamotte-Picquet which was sunk in Saigon during 1945.

I found this one, but not sure the breech area is original. Like I said, many parts were reconstructed for display. I'm gonna go there and take some closer pictures when I have time.
