This old German cinderella promotes the 4th General Artillery Exhibition of Saxony which was held on the 13-15 of June in 1914 in Bautzen. The show was held two weeks before the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria.

The label depicts a German officer standing in front of two soldiers astride a Krupp 7.5cm Model 1903 howitzer. The Saxony coat of arms is on the lower left, and the Bautzen, Saxony coat of arms is on the upper right. This label is large (45mm x 66mm) and it printed on clay coated paper. The signature of H. Deubner is in the lower lower right corner.

Marshall Islands

1992

1v.

Schwerer Gustav (English: Heavy Gustaf) was a German 80-centimetre (31.5 in) railway gun. It was developed in the late 1930s by Krupp in Dar#322;owo (then Rügenwalde) as siege artillery for the explicit purpose of destroying the main forts of the French Maginot Line, the strongest fortifications in existence at the time. The fully assembled gun weighed nearly 1,350 tonnes (1,490 short tons), and could fire shells weighing 7 t (7.7 short tons) to a range of 47 km (29 mi).[1] The gun was designed in preparation for the Battle of France, but was not ready for action when the battle began, and in any case the Wehrmacht's Blitzkrieg offensive through Belgium rapidly outflanked and isolated the Maginot Line's static defenses, eventually forcing the French to surrender and making their destruction unnecessary. Gustav was later deployed in the Soviet Union during the Battle of Sevastopol, part of Operation Barbarossa, where, among other things, it destroyed a munitions depot located roughly 30 m (98 ft) below ground level (font Wikipedia)
