Unknown gun shield

Postby Jens Andersen » 11 Apr 2009 17:19

Hi

the gun on the attached photos was found at the 15 cm battery of Faarupklit after the German capitulation.

The gun is a German 10,5 cm. S.K. C/32. But can anybody recognize the shield?

I can't remember to have seem anything like it elsewehere.

Best regards
Jens

Hi Jens ,

Thank you very much for the two clear gun photos . J belive that the
gun is a 10,5 cm Ubts und Tbts Flak L/45 in Ubts und Tbts L C / 16
with elevation - 10 to + 50 . The guns were converted to take 10,5 cm
S.K. C / 32 ammunition . But the gun orgin is a clear 10,5 cm submarine
gun of WW 1 .

The gun shield ??? They are rare , but J have seen the same shield at
Sperrbrecher 14 ( Bockenheim ) . Page 183 + page 190 in Peter Arndt
Deutsche Sperrbrecher 1914 - 1945 .

Hope this helps ???

Regards
ludvig

Hi Ludvig

Thanks a lot. I will check the shield in the book.

But that shield can't for submarine use! Where have they found it?

Hello Jens

The M.K.B. See 1./509 and M.K.B. Tvaersted 3./509 had these guns so maybe the photo was taken there ???
Here a other convermation on the gun from a other report , I could not find anything on the gun shield .
I can't see a reason for the large opening on the right , on the tipp of the barrel there is a extra reinforcement .

Regards Jos

Hi Jos

Thank you for the comments and the list of guns.

However, it is completely sure that the gun was at Faarupklit as the pciture is a part of a series from that place and, also, it is mentioned in a Danish report.

The guns in Tversted were submarine guns all right, but they were S.K.C/32's. They had shields of the type used on the torpedo boots.

Best regards
Jens
