great find! Reminds me of this little tank https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2019/10/for-hundred-years-this-french-tank-has.html standing guard in Norway for 100 years
Here's the full story of the Italian cannon on Cresta Croce, a, 11,000 feet high mountain ridge, left there in WWI, in the forgotten White War, which was over annexing lands held by the Austro Hungarian empire, but inhabited by Italians https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2019/10/an-italian-cannon-still-stands-on.html
Wonder if that barrel had been changed over time? Sure looks shorter and bead-blasted..........
This cannon (correctly: a howitzer) can be found on Monte Adamello (3.554 m above sea level) in Northern Italy. http://www.moesslang.net/149g_haubitze_im_adamello.htmThe North Italian Alps were frontline for more than three and a half years in one of the fiercest campaigns known in military history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_WarEven today, more than hundred years after the cease-fire the mountains and glaciers of this high-alpine region relinquish great masses of military gear, weapons and ammunitions. http://www.moesslang.net/cevedale_3_kanonen.htm
