Hi Sturm78
The first photo looks like the one at De Panne ( http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... k&start=30 )

Here a document with the 5 cm KwK on a 7.5 cm S.K. 97 (f) base just as the photo's
from Malcolm from the Channel Islands and one in Dieppe at the museum from Axis.

Thanks for the list Jos.
The 7.5 cm S.K. 97 (f) was intended as the first Sockellafette for the 5 cm KwK. This combination was designed in July 1942, but it seems that it was soon given up, and instead the Behelfssockellafette for 5 cm KwK was designed in July or August 1942. There is an interesting article about this topic in Waffen-Revue #79. (I think I have got a copy somewhere, but I cannot find it.)
Interesting that a number of these Sockellafetten with 5 cm KwK were actually installed in fortifications.
Greetings Lars

Could this be a print of a Sockellafette S.K. 97 (f)?

Malcolm already mentioned this one in Wn Perleberg on Guernsey (L 411A)

Going by the picture I'd say it's an L/60.
