This is one of two artillery casemates that were built next to Petit Ouvrage La Ferte, know as Panzerwerk 505 by the Wehrmacht, who attacked and killed the entire French crew during battle.

I am away from my references at the moment, but I can say that the casemate is probably in the Flandres, Lille, or Escaut sectors, quite possibly Mont Noir.
