Re post number 713 21 Sep 2019, 23:52 My best guess would be a 152 MM 45 Canet model 1892.
Ummhhh...It is very possible that you are right...It seems that the Canet M1892 used various different mounts....It is difficult to ensure...

It's the dismounted breech from the sole 28cm l/14 haubitze. From the same vendor:
Thank you very much for your help, EKZ17 .. :wink:

Certainly looks as though it could be, though I had never seen such a close up before, but after looking it is very similar to the Noonday gun at Hong Kong as well as a sketch of the 3pdr in French service;

I don't think it's a 3 Pounder (see image) - that had paired recoil cylinders each side of the breech. More likely to be one of the innumerable versions
of the 6 Pounder - the same gun that was used in the Mark I & II tanks.

Hi karlik,

I know the 6inch M1908 howitzer, but this one had a different shield and a more robust trail carriage
About the 4.7in M1908/1912 ....Could be....I could not find information on the net except for some image
