I agree.
The shells for a lg 21 cm Mörser are about 80 cm high, there´s no way that soldier is leanign on a 80 cm long shell.
A 25 cm schwere Springmine is just over 1 m long, however, it has a pre cut drivingband, which i do not see on the picture.
Both 28 cm Granate 12 (28 cm Mörser), 1 m long, and 30,5 cm Langgranate (1,05 m long, for the 30,5 cm chwerer Küstenmörser) have the same appearence as the shells in the picture, but they had a base fuze.

Post nr. 702: these are indeed HE rounds for 3,7 cm SK.C/30

Post nr. 704: first picture is in the wrong catagory, those are bombs.

Post 694: no idea, but looks like a british naval shell missing it's cap.
Post 696: impossible to say, but i think french , Obus de 220 mm explosif mod 1914.
Post 697: french, Obus de 220 mm explosief en acier mod 1915-D, ballistic caps are missing.
Post 699: german 7,5 cm Kw.K. rounds, the soldier is holding either a HE 7,5 cm Gr.Patr. Kw.K. or 7,5 cm Nbgr.Patr Kw.K. smoke round, next to his feet on the right are hollow charge rounds, most likely 7,5 cm Gr.Patr. 38 Kw.K.

Post 695 shows shells for the 80 cm K (E), a HE shell standing, and a proof shot lying horizontally. I suspect this picture was taken in Hillersleben.

Thanks for your answers, Zünder :wink:

The identification of the exact model of the artillery shells or only the identification of their caliber from the old wartime photos is a rather complicated task ... and more for a non-expert person, as is my case... :roll:

Soviet ammunition. I think that the large artillery shells are 152mm G-530 and F-542 for the ML-20 howitzer. Is this correct ?
About the mortar grenades I think 50mm for PM-38 mortar....Anyone ?

The hand greandes are RGD-33
