Hello,
Nice pics !!!
I'm noy sure that this bunker is an ammo bunker, but maybe, in this area, technical bunker (storage, pumps, and so one..).
Unfortunately, this area is currently still forbidden.

Hello

From Google Earth - it must be this area and the bunker in the upper right corner?

Hello Kurt,
it should be Lo 326 with 9 "Kraftstofftanks".
regarding Jörg it is possibly a LS Bunker.
also there were placed 2cm flak.

Hello,
no, it is maybe La Rochelle but no Lorient.
The precedent bunker could be a sanitätstand.

Think it’s La Rochelle before the pier and the last 3 docks was build. Looks like the digging is well on its way for the remaining work! Nice picture

Have to agree; we've just been in Lorient and that pic doesn't ring any bells.

Hello All

There are two gun bunkers build in the UBB bunker at Lorient , one at K 3 and one at the concrete slope
for the U-boats . In most books and internetsite's these bunkers are equiped with 7.5 cm (f) but if you
see this info it looks that the guns were 8.8 cm U boot kanone ??

Who has any picture's of pivot or bolds on the ground of these gun bunkers at the UBB Lorient .

Regards Jos
