Hi Jos,

I'm thinking HKB St-Gabriel - 1./1245 - 6 x 15.5 cm K.418 (f) - with the steps on the emplacement. :?

Thank you very much for your answers, Jopaerya and Emmanuel. :D

About my second image I agree with Jopaerya. 3./HKB 1245 in Touquet-Plage. In the book "Atlantikwall. Mithe ou Realite" Pag.135 of A. Chazatte there is a picture of 3./HKB 1245 with the same camouflage nets and the wheels of the guns covered with wood.

Hello Sturm78

(1) I think the 28 cm S.K.L/40 on your photo is from Wangerooge
Why do you think the picture is taken in Wangerooge? :?

The photo's that I have seen from the M.K.B. Graf Spee ( Brest ) have no camouflage ,
so that why I think it's at the German coast .

(2) Could be H.K.B. Touquet-Plage ( 3./1245 ) 6 x 15.5 cm K.418 (f)
(3) My guess is the M.K.B. Bastion II ( Calais ) 3 x 19.4 cm K.M. 02
Jos is correct

I'm wondering if it is not a dummy gun, "Geschuetz Attrape" in German. Compare with the type of camouflage setting here:

Any idea of the type of guns and location of this German heavy coastal battery? According to the caption it was somewhere on the French coast along the Channel. But I doubt it since there are high grounds visible in the background. And it doesn't quite look like the Pyrenees mountains. Maybe Norway instead?

Hello Sturm78

The first one is from M.K.B. Couronne ( 4 x 13.8 cm K.M.10 (f) ) and the second one M.K.B. Fort Napoleon
with the same guns . Both batteries in the Südwall near and at Marseille .
