Hello Sturm78,
Thanks for the uploading !
J belive the gun is a 28 cm S.K.L/40 from "Graf Spee " battery
Please see :

Notice the monorails for the assembly crane + the looong roof

Do you know if these images were taken in Brest or in Wangerooge?

Hello Sturm78,
According to Hans - Jürgen Jürgens :
"Zeugnisse aus unheilvoller Zeit " , page 142 :
The Batterie " Graf Spee " were emplaced at Wangerooge from
1917 to 1940 before transfer to France in 1940 . So a qualified
quess , builng of " Graf Spee " in Brest .

Hi Sturm78,

It is possibly a 30.5 cm SK L/50.

One of these two pictures was discussed in another thread: :wink:

I think that the picture below from ebay.com shows a barrel of a heavy gun being towed for installation at a coastal battery on the northern French coast. What do you think? Any idea of the caliber or which battery?

Only one half-track is visible but several vehicles were actually used to pull these very heavy loads.
