Hi

Can anyone help with the identification of this gun, which was part of the battery defending the island of Maaloy.

Regards

Bob

Very interesting photos!

The gun is a ex-Belgian K234(b)
This is infact a German 7,5cm FK16nA bought by the Belgian army before ww2, captured by the Germans, and destroyed by the British in Norway 8O

The battery fought for approx. 30 minutes before it was captured.

Does this look familiar??
