They appear to be 7.5 inch Mark II naval guns on CP mounts.

My mistake. These are 7.5 inch mark VI guns not Mark IIs. There were 5 of them emplaced in Mozambique by the british during WWII.

Hi Forty,
Your photo looks more like the 24cm of Batterie Brandenburg (Festung Hoek van Holland).
If so it was built on an early Marine SK (about 1.5.m thick concrete).

Thanks for your help, jopaerya.
About the first image, I suppose this gun is the same that 15cm SK L40, is it not?

On the other hand, Can somebody identify this gun ?
