Improvised carriage for 4,7 cm Festungpak 36 (t)

The improvised carriage for 4,7 cm Festungpak (t) has now appeared in Czechia. It is probably from Lorient. According to available information, it was bought by Fortress Museum from foreign collector. He told them it was sold by land owner to another collector many years ago. I can't verify exactly how it was, I'm just writing what I was told.

I have seen photos on Facebook where they asked if anyone knows the type. They also said they didn't need the carriage any more, and possibly they can sell it. They offered the carriage to Czech Military Historical Institute, but they were not interested, they primarily collect Czechoslovak weapons.

I have nothing to do with this museum, I only suggested them that it is useful to publish information on this forum. The contact for the Fortress Museum is sikolama@email.cz (they speak English).

The lower part looks to me as any old coastal or ship carriage. Could it be of French origin?

I don’t get this kind of handling of history. This whole mount is part of the history of the gun! It’s a one time piece and nobody’s interested? Where’s the sense of history?
