The picture is a 4 inch CP mark IX. Her is a similar weapon being mounted on a ship.
Note both the recoil system and the unusual positioning of the traversing wheel on the right side of the pedestal.
Thanks for your answer, ROLAND1369,
What is your opinion about the images posted on 17 Feb 2018 and 14 Mar 2018 ??

I believe the top photo is the 12in and the bottom 9.2in. Compare the three "bands" at the front of the receiver of the top photo to only two full "bands" at the front on the bottom photo.

it looks like a Danish Madsen 20 MM gun although what one would be doing in british service in the desert is suprising.

Hi!
If I'm not mistaken this photo was signed as british airfield in Burma.

The gunners are wearing puttees, so probably WW1.
