All this stuff are Yugoslav - M.36 AA in 76,5mm (Skoda Vz.37), M.15/26 long guns (ex-Austro-Hungarian 104mm WWI M.15 model), field guns M.28 (80mm, not 70mm; Yugoslav version of Skoda Vz.30 field gun).

80mm, not 70mm


I am note sure about calibre from Skoda for Yugosloavia but czechs never used 80mm. Weapons reffered as 8 cm is actually 76.5 mm.
(like 4 cm KPUV vzor 36 is actually 47mm)

You're probably right - I gave Yugoslav markings. They called their FK 05 (ö), Vz.30 and Vz.33 models "80 mm".
(But Vz.37 AA gun was correctly named "76.5mm" - there were already too much "80mm.s", all using different ammo)

Hello Jos,

No, it's Cherbourg. Note Fort du Roule on top of the hill on the right. A Vickers pom-pom gun coud be a leftover after the evacuation of the harbor by the British forces in June 40. That would explain the Germans letting the kids play next to the gun !

Thanks Jos.

Thanks Jos, I knew there was something similar to the 120 mm G De Bange Mle1878 !

Any idea where these 90 mm guns were still in use in WW II ?

Hello all,

this looks like a British QF 2 pounder, but the mounting seems rather strange?
From e-bay.de
