Thank you very much for your help, @ndrew.

Do you have any other wartime image of these guns?

Hello

The guns were reused by the Kriegsmarine as the M.K.B. Schlesien at the
same place with troops of the 6./545 ( 4 x 15.24 cm S.K.L/55 ) .

Look like 105mm SK C/33. But was it ever used on land?
With best wishes
