There is a whole series of pictures that go with this one. Some show most of the gun, others show large casemates among rolling hills. It looks like a 30.5 cm SK, possible of MKB Friedrich August. :idea:

Location? (source is on the picture).
Only I don't think the officer on the right in front, faced to the camera is Cavello?

I think the photo from post 622 is taken at B. Graf Spee , here a BAMA photo from the same
visit of the axis military attachés . Maybe the photographer was standing above the officers ??

Photo = BaMa/Alain Chazette

Thanks!

It looks like the man in the circle has a camera in his hands. See also the belt on his neck.
