At the beginning of this video, a 24 cm K(E) 557(f) in action in Russia. I think it is the same gun as on the 2nd picture of this thread (with the wooden logs and branches). :idea:

Uwe,

Isn't E.691 the only E-battery that operated this railway gun until October 1944 when 3 of the guns were transferred to E. 8/100?

See here under "8/100" for the transfer:

Hello Emmanuel, the document from Oct 1944 shows a suggestion only, the 24 cm guns (E) were in maintenance at this time,
not ready for use,
the final order for "Aufrischung und Umbewaffnung" to 24 cm guns (E) is from February 1945.
