Originally developed for Subcaliber firing on large Navel guns. These were adopted for Wartime Aerial service by adding a breech to what was a "Tube" inserted in the larger bore, Hence the "Tube Cannon" designation.

Again very nice rounds some I've not seen before, I have a case dated 2.5.38 presumabley they were back to Naval practice use at that date and fitted with the solid shot.
Yes I think they were

and the solid shot was changed to use a tracer and there were other post ww1 projectiles that might have been used along with the usual Mle 1888s.

Great items, seem like not a day goes by that I don't see something new to me in here. Great stuff Gordon great info...Dano
