Hi

Compilation of some pictures from 1930's - 1940's period of Swiss Army 4,7 cm Böhler
It's interesting that guns have different wheels, have or haven't muzzle brake and in one picture it's evident
gun shield

I think the picture shows some German mountain unit somewhere in 1940 who used ex-Austian ADMK and ex-Dutch 4,7 cm Bohler... I think...

In big size of picture I see soldier with snow goggles on his cap, also You can see the characteristic black collar
of course, PROBABLY :)

I think the Austrian 4,7 cm Bohlers looked like in the photo from Dec. 5, 2010 post of Markus, I thing this post presents Austrian Bundesheer 4,7 cm Bohler with spoked - like motorcycles - wheels. I think, this wheels are characteristic of the 4,7 cm Bohlers built in the early years of production (to Austrian, Estonian, Swiss armies)

In attachments are
1. Photo compilation of picture posted by Markus with pictures of Austrian Bundesheer soldiers from 1936 - 1937 period. Particular attention different shade of uniforms from light to dark.
2. I thing original 4,7 cm Austrian Bundesheer Bohler.

Regards, Stan

Stan,

I think you're right. The gun looks like an ex-Dutch 4,7 cm Bohler indeed: the wheels look typical of that version.
