Hello,

I think it could be a Czech 10,5 cm Kanone 35(t) (10,5 cm hrubý kanón vz. 35).

The German officer in white is Vizeadmiral Hans-Heinrich Wurmbach, so I guess the picture is from somewhere at the Black Sea.

best regards

Hallo Jens,

thank you very much :)

10,5 K35 (t) is what I was hoping for :)

if it is Wurmbach as Admiral Schwarzes Meer, I guess the other one is a rumanian admiral, will ask in the Axis minor part again :)

thanks a lot :)

Alexander
