Yes, the photo is probably from 1940 as the gun still is marked with its serial number 10141, and the letter S. This gun was originally the midship port secondary gun on the Norwegian Ironclad "Tordenskjold", in April 1940 lying in reserve status at the Naval Station in Horten/Norway. The picture is most probable taken at Marine-Artillerie-Batterie Sognefjord, but that is difficult to determine based on only one picture. The layout of the gun emplacement fits pretty well with Sognefjord.

Hello
Looking at the album on ebay and it seems like it could be from MKB Sandnessjøen.
Perhaps someone can take a look at it and see where it is ? (item 391421240739)

OK, Sandnessjöen it is. That was my other option. All the batteries, 4 three-gun batteries, with the naval version of the gun were built to the same standard in 1940. The batteries were Sognefjord, Sandnessjöen, Mosjöen and Narvik (german used names).

It's a German submarine type U139-141 received as war trophy by the English Navy in 1920, in the port of Halifax.
