This is the northern 683 casemate. The 21 cm Skoda gun barrel was ejected outside after a US voluntary explosive test in August 1944.

There was an accidental explosion in the other 683 casemate also in August 1944 but the gun barrel was not ejected.

In August 1944, much of the battery terrain was covered with dirt, without much grass. The grass on the ebay picture is pretty tall which means that the picture would have been taken in the summer of 1945 at the earliest. :idea:

The characters are wearing berets. Could they be German POW, British intelligence officers inspecting the defenses or French civilians recovering steel scrap? :idea:

The first photo is clearly H.K.B. Azeville, don't know 100% about the second picture . Both from Ebay.
