I cant speak for the bunker pics but the casemated bunker gun is a 120 MM SK L40(n). A captured dutch destroyer gun(Tjerk Hiddes Class) and to the best of my knowledge only used within Holland . The gun casemate shown was in the Hook Van Holland location.

Hi all,

Can somebody identify this coastal gun ? I think it is an 15cm SK L45 gun, probably but according to Ebay photo caption, the image was taken in La Rochelle and I think that there were not 15cm SK L45 guns in La Rochelle.....
