The gun on top is a 38 cm K(E) Siegfried. It may have been captured in Ahlen, southwest of Bielefeld, Germany, where these pictures have been taken (according to the back side of the 2nd picture shown on ebay).

Looking at the twisted railing alongside the gun and in particular the last section on the rear right of the gun, it seems identical to the gun at Ahlen which pictures have been posted at the beginning of the following thread:

The 2nd gun is an ex-French 40 cm H(E) 752(f) nicknamed August by the Germans.
There are other pictures of this same gun but at what looks like a different location here:

We are all indebted to your knowledge Jos 8-). Yours and that of a number of very experienced people on the forum, such as Guy Francois.

Hi all,

I have a long time ago this image (from Ebay) without identification.
I am not sure if it is an 28cm neue Bruno K (E) (as I think) or perhaps an 28cm K5 (E)...
Somebody ?

Hi all,

Another image from Ebay. I think probably an 28cm kurze Bruno K (E) but it is difficult to ensure
