 Hey Mick, the infamous big Bertha's marine and railway gun's.78mm.

The shell's are marine marked, one have been used 3 times (in 1916,17and 18) the other twice (1917 and 18) both come from the two different factory's who produced them.
In fact a complete collection on it self...
No gun survived the war, they all had to be demolished.
