Now we can further investigate where the ship was going and when? 8-)
Export to China, Portugal? Supply to German troops in Baltics? Invasion of Norway?

must be somewhere in the baltic area. why would they load a ship in the baltic going to china or norway when they had occupied france to do it?

Good points.

I cant see a reason why they would be offloading SFH18s in Stettin.
The scene looks rather peaceful to me, so my best guess is this is the 1930s and we might be looking at a shipment for China (which took place in the 1930s, before the war, not during) or even for the Condor Legion. Embarking a ship for Norway in 1940 would probably have been a bit more secretive.
I agree, shipping these howitzers for Portugal might have been through France, possibly even by land.

ah, you said that it could be unloading to china before the war. stettin is in poland, why on earth would the germans be using a polish seaport?

for all we know this ship could be unloading guns for the German reserve army in occupied poland.

Shows what you know, because Stettin was actually German until 1945.

Hi Sturm!

I´d say the 3rd gun is a 100 mm Skoda M14 field gun.

Regards,

Befehl

pic no2 is a 10cm houfnice vz.14]19 (Skoda) and

Well done, Dimi! :)

I thought that only the Putilov M02/30 had the characteristic shield. I didn´t know that also the old types had these shields.

Hello,

#2 could, IMHO, be 100 mm haubica wz. 14/19, i.e. 10 cm Skoda's houfnice made in Poland under licence.

Also Polish 75 mm armata polowa wz. 02/26, i.e. rebored Putilov's M1902 had this distinctive shield.

Regards,
MJU
