it´s right- it´s a 7P7 in a 100er Serie...
It could be a 105, 107, or a 108- the photo shows a Kasematte (flanking)-
Arthur is right too, with the high water protection on the entrance.
Bunkers like this were built so often in the saar region.

I do not know precisely where it was built but the Belgian PFN (Poste Fortification de Namur) had lots of pillboxes in between the older fortesses.
Could be one of those, there is a Internetsite of one of our Forum members of the Dutch Fortification Forum.

It could also be one of the pillboxes between Liege (Luik) and Namur (Namen), These pillboxes were built next to the Meuse river (Maas).
The arrow pointing to the right could be aiming at the direction of Namur.

I found this interesting image on Ebay. According to photocaption greek bunker, probably of Metaxas Line.
Can anyone identify the gun inside the bunker from the ammunition shown on the outside?

I´m not expert for artillery, but I think, the gun could be 75 mm Schneider-Danglis or 75 mm Schneider mod. 1897.

You are correct , a 100% match . I have a other one , this was build in Le Havre in a light Flakbatterie
in the harbour . The two large rooms inside are 4.00 by 5.00 , it's looks that is a gasslock that would
mean that the right room would be for personel ?? On the roof a small bettung
Who has seen this type of bunker on other places ???
