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?
The message under the photo locates the bunker somewhere in the general area of Komotini and Xanthi. Greece had two forts there (Nymfea and Ehinos). The first had only a couple of 37mm AT guns, while the second had 2 75mm Skoda mountain guns and one Krupp 102mm field gun (as well as other smaller guns). I've no idea what this peculiar Krupp piece exactly was. The Skoda 75mm pieces must have been the 1915 models, beacuse I don't see any other listed as part of the Greek artillery of the period.KaiserChief wrote:Yes, it looks like a Greek AT bunker. See attachement.
I´m not expert for artillery, but I think, the gun could be 75 mm Schneider-Danglis or 75 mm Schneider mod. 1897.

To be honest, the piece in the photo, blurry as it is, doesn't look very much like the skoda mountain gun.
