I'm not an artillery buff but I'm sure it would help a lot if you told us where the photo was taken as details of UK and French batteries may well be a matter of record?
Sorry Brian, sounds a good idea. Couldn`t find how to add text after I`d added the photo.
It`s at Budle Bay in Northumberland.
May have been a 4-inch ex naval gun according to WWII gun emplacement, Budle Bay:: OS grid NU1635 :: Geograph Britain and Ireland - photograph every grid square!
is also very interesting but mainly about Druridge Bay. One site calls it a Hotchkiss gun emplacement and another a 6" gun emplacement - I can't find any reference to Hotchkiss 4 or 6inch ordnance, and it seems much more likely to have been a 4inch QF mark ix but I'm only saying that as I know they were installed as coastal defence near me at Crosby.Someone more knowledgeable is bound to be along soon.
Thank you very much Brian, Sorry, but your second link dosn`t work. Would be very grateful if you could check it please.
