It looks that wheels are not fixed to the axe.

The first photo is very interesting for me.
Soldiers are wearing caps which are very similar to those, which worn K.u.K. soldiers during WWI. The blouses are looking like WWI Austro-Hungarian style too.

The Lithuanian Army had no one 47mm Böhler AT gun. You confused Lithuania and Latvia, as You, russians, often do :)

Incredible picture, a rare one of a shielded Bohler. The location appears to be Rotterdam, Statensingel corner Statenweg (lived there close by).
