Thanks for your help, ludvig.

I suppose a Bofors design. Is this gun an original naval gun, reused later as coastal artillery ?

My best guess would be a 194 MM Mle 1902 SUR AFFRUT Mle 1934. However my knowledge and reference material on French CD weapons is limited.

Yes, 194 mm Mle 1902 at Fort de l'Eve (St-Nazaire - France). The shield is missing. Therefore, the picture has probably being taken while the Germans were dismantling the battery in 1941.

Hi all,

An image from Ebay. According to photo caption, Walcheren, Holland
Is this a Dutch 12 cm long 40 (Krupp) ?
