Very interesting info but I have a pair of questions. All this numbers concerning all French Army (incl. Alpian front, Levant, North Africa) or only North-East front? And fortress units' artillery is included?

Here are links to pictures of the 75 and 105 Mle 1919 & 1928 for comparison. A noticeable difference between Mle 1919 and Mle 1928 in both cases (75 & 105) is the absence of mudguards above the wheels. The shield is also significantly different.
The 75 mm guns have a reduced diameter of the front half part of barrel while the 105s have a straighter barrel.
