Hi Sturm78,

Image 1: It looks like a French “canon de 164 Mle 1893/96 sur affût M » but they are many variations of this gun. It could the Castel Vendon battery near Cherbourg but this is just a guess.

Image 2 : It is a French « canon de 240 Mle 1903 TR » from the La Hève battery near Le Havre (about 1 hour west of Rouen).

Thanks Jos for the location for (1).

For (2), I'm convinced it's La Hève battery next to Le Havre. The picture was part of a series that matched other pictures from La Hève battery. The same series also contained pictures from Rouen and the Seine River, so, much closer to Le Havre than Cherbourg. :idea:

Sturm78,

The two pictures were taken at Fort de Nacqueville Haut, near Cherbourg. See "Mur de l'Atlantique: les batteries de côte" d'Alain Chazette. 8-)
