I don't know original source of that picture, but I think it is very intersesting. The picture has been taken about 80'is of 20'th century? A scrap heap of dismantled guns, Norway or? 15 cm barrels and bigger ones?
That's a well known site in Jersey (Les Landes).

Hi all,

According to Ebay photo caption, Creta so I guess a British captured coastal gun.
Can somebody identify the exact model ? 102mm ??
