Heavy Artillery - British or German?

Recommended Posts

Came across this picture of an Artillery position in a German Lieutenant’s photo-album. I thought it to be German but the caption with the picture implies that it is a captured British position.

The location is Holnon Forest - the time, late March 1918.

Are the Artillery pieces British or German?

Please follow the link below to see the picture.

Thank you Jens, so it is a captured British Howitzer battery position. Great!

Now, it appears the Howitzers are in a recoiled state - is this normal or have they been rendered useless by the British before capture?
