    Default Unidentified Normandy find.

    Found this a few days ago in a Normandy weapons/armour dump where we usually find vehicle parts.
    Its about 25cm dia and has a screw thread and rubber seal around the circumference.
    Its marked
    Ritter Coln
    24cm M/98
    1902 s/no 566

    All I can find for M/98 in that calibre was the Austro Hungarian Morser siege mortar which was not used during WW11.
    There were two batteries using 24cm artillery pieces on the Atlantic wall but not with this designation. Anyway all I want to know what it is.
    Thanks for any help,
    Shaun
