Thanks for the reply Jos. I'm not sure either on the calibre, but it looks a bit small to be a 38 cm.

Looks like 30,5 cm Skoda K10 from S.M.S. Prinz Eugen. Probably the guns intended for Battery Suomi (Petsamo), but after cancellation of that Battery in September 1944 redirected for use on the Island Wangerooge.

The emplacement of the photo of v60pih looks like H.K.B. Katwijk-alt , but could the gun be a 17 cm K 18 ?? ( Drawing = BRV )
