More info would help if available. Right now, I'd guess it was a Belgian (I believe the soldiers are wearing leather leggings, not puttees). The gun looks to be about 75mm, and if I had to guess, I would say it was a 75mm M-05 TRP. Compare it to this photo: http://img227.imageshack.us/my.php?image=giscpi4.jpg The gun was used in both World Wars. The main difference is the top of the shield. The Belgians also used a 75mm GP canon; I'll look for a photo.

Based on the general cut of the uniforms (whatever the nationality) my very subjective guess is it's a late Inter-war photograph.

The text on the building in the rear looks German to me (I want to read "Reitschule").
Probably taken on German or Austrian soil then.

After seeing the e-bay link, it does seem likely the photo was taken in Austria. I couldn't find a descent on-line image of the 75mm Belgian GP III, but IIRC, it was a re-tubed German 7.7cm FK 16, which I believe (but am less certain about) these guns were obtain as post-war reparations.

The reason I suspected Belgians here initially was because of the leather leggings vs. boots or puttees. I had copied the original and pasted it into my graphics software, and played around with the brightness and contrast, and to me, they looked like the strap-on leggings. I am not especially familiar with WWI or Inter-bellum uniforms, especially with the Central and Eastern European Powers. The Belgians were the only nation I can recall that used them. Can anybody enlighten me about other users? Or perhaps persuade me I need different glasses? :D

Hi all,

Two other pictures of old guns to identify correctly.
Image 2 from Ebay.de and
Image 1 from http://www.network54.com/Forum/330333/t ... Army+1930s

The first photo shows a cannon of the Austrian army in the 30s. Probably a Skoda weapon.

Regards Sturm78.

Hi all,

Nobody have any idea? :(

Other two old guns for Id. It is very difficult for me to identify correctly the WW1-era guns. :?
All the guns look the same. :lol:

Hi all,

Well, I hope to have more luck this time with this old gun. :lol: . I think it's a 15cm sFH13 or sFH17 perhaps.
Can anyone confirm this?

It's not a sFH 13 because of the weird little triangular extension underneath the breech. See the photos on the wiki page for the sFH 13 to see what I mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/15_cm_sFH_13. Checked the rest of the German WW I artillery and can't find any other likely candidates.

Maybe 15 cm lange schwere Feldhaubitze 13/02. Photo from "Taschenbuch der Artillerie - Band 2 - Mittlere Feldgeschütze" by Franz Kosar.
