Verdun Artillery,

these are obviously Austrians, but the card is stamped from Verdun. Also, the guy on the very left seems German.

Maybe paul can have a go at this?

Heya Chris,

There were no Austian 30,5 cm batteries at Verdun. They were deployed close, at Forts Troyon and Liouville, in September 1914. Ft. Troyon is about 20 km, as the crow flies, south of Verdun, so I could see why someone might lable the picture as such.

Hi,

I remember JensF once mentioning finding an Austrian shell in the forest at Verdun... cannot remember what though...

No, it was a trip over it and break your leg thing, a huge chunk of steel, still laying there as dangerous as on the day it was born.

Hello Chris,

Don't know what to tell ya. As far as anything I've read the nearest a 30,5cm Austrian gun came to Verdun was what I posted a few months ago. There definitely weren't any there during the battle in 1916.
