Thank you very much for your information, Ludvig. :D

Image 1: I guess you're referring to 152mm L50 Armstrong, but without shield, no?? Have you any additional image of this gun?
Image 2: One gun in the background but, is the barrel in the foreground other gun? According to the link this coastal battery have 3 guns, and seems to have been operational in the summer of 1943.

These are the only images of 152mm L50 Armstrong gun that I have found in the Web:

The item in the forground is not another gun but the rangefinder for the battery.
