Thanks Alain

For you is everything "Simple" but not for me , I have trouble with
field carriage of the gun is does not fit any book that I have .
But you are the Specialiste Francais , it looks that the gun
has a muzzlebreak just like the 155 mm Mle 1932 S .

Respectin the piece, I can see the muzzle correspond to the 152 mm md 1932 french gun model, but the breech sistem is totally different. It seems to be similar to the 150 mm GPF of the 1WW. Take a carely look.
The carriage is completly unknown to me but seems to be an old french model
