According to the Ebay caption this should be near Neapels before shipment to North-Africa .

What I would like to know is from what unit the Germans captured these weapons? It must have been from a major command, say Blanchard's 1ère Armée? Does anyone here know precisely? I suspect the photo might have been taken somewhere near Lille, non?
Hello Sash

Referring to more photos in ebay it's in Troyes

I wonder which unit was using them?

And where on the line it was captured?

Thanks. Interesting photo.

A series of pictures of a 15,5 cm K419(f) prepared by the Germans in Tobruk in June 1941:

Go to: http://dati.acs.beniculturali.it/SecondaGuerraMondiale/

Then type "Cannone tedesco sul fronte di Tobruch nel giugno 1941" in the research block (top right).

Canon de 155 GPF (Unaltered mle 1917). Number in service in 1940?
Canon de 155 GPF-CA (mle 1917 with enlarged firing chamber). Number in service in 1940?
Canon de 155 GPFT. 24 in service 1940.

Can anyone fill in the two unknowns above? I have a figure of 352, but whether that's for GPF and GPF-CA together, I don't know.

Was the GPFT a GPF-CA on the touzard carriage?
