I've seen some photos of what looks like a Skoda howitzer, taken at Red Cliffs, Victoria, Australia. Looks about 210 mm. Does anybody know what model it is ? Australia was pretty active at bringing home captured artillery after WWI but they weren't in action against Austrians as far as I know. ???

According to War Trophies, Red Cliffs was allocated a surrendered 1908 model 210mm howitzer (serial number 5) that was surrendered as part of the Armistice conditions. It was obtained from the [then] Australian War Museum in 1928.
