Hello Sturm78

It's the commandpost of the French coastbatterie at Fort la Creche ( Boulogne), reused by the Germans .

The square part of the bunker is now gone (demolished a long time ago), could this be a German addition that was demolished after the war to bring the bunker back to the prewar state.
Or could it be the part was demolished for radar or wireless transmission was jammed (for the Tour d'Odre station for instance)?

It is Soviet 76-mm gun and the bunker seems to be a Soviet one. Finnish Army captured 13 of these bunker guns in year 1941 and later installed 10 of them to Finnish bunkers. Finnish Army knew this fortification gun as 76 K/27-k (76-mm bunker gun model 1927). However structure of the bunker does look like a Soviet one and there likely seems to be date (14.9.1941) written above gun. Finnish Army didn't decide where to install the captured guns until May of 1942.

This could be could be Finnish photo showing one of the Soviet bunkers in KaUR, which was a Soviet fortified region in Carelian Isthmus west & north-west of Leningrad. Finnish Army captured parts of it before stopping its attack around 5th of September 1941.

This excellent fortification website has lot of photos from KaUR:
