The 5 cm KwK L/60 seems to be the one in the Tobruk installed on the north end of Boulevard Albert 1er along the beach. :idea:

The 7,62 cm FK295/2(r) has to be a LAG. Any idea about the location?

Dear Friends,

The 5 cm KwK L/60 is the one in the Tobruk installed on the north end of Boulevard Albert 1er. The picture is just taken from a different point of view. The house behind is still existing.

Sébastien

The only 7,62 cm FK gun I have been able to find so far mentioned in Le Havre defenses in 1944 was positioned at MKB St Adresse at Le Nice Havrais. It could be the gun on the picture then. :idea:

Hello

Picture 2 - is that a part of the harbour (jetty) or such - or is it a bunker?

Picture 3 - is that permanent AA positions / guns for the harbour defence - or onboard a ship?

Hello Kurt

@ Picture 3 looks to me a triple Bren gun ( 7.7 cm M.G. 138 (e) ) in a concrete emplacement on Nordmole .
