It doesn't quite look like a 152 mm Canet gun. :?

A list of Estonian coastal artillery is given in this thread:

Jos,

I think that it is one of the 164 [mm] Mle 1893-96 guns of the French naval battery at Kerbonn (Brest). The wall on the right of the picture is the same as on the following picture of a similar gun at Kerbonn (from ebay).

Hi Sturm,
Its looks 24 cm S.K.L/40, if yes the two options for the locations are Bttr. Hambourg (Cherbourg area) and Bttr Graf Spee (Brest area).

If it is a 240 MM it cannot be Graf Spey as that battery was 280 mm caliber.
