Hello Erik

I do very much like your pictures, specially the ones from Lista ( as I have been there myselve recently ) I do love the nature, but the sites are very hard to find !!!!

I have here a pair of photoes from LW Ringelnatter in Søndervig, which i think is a kind of "funny" and rare - too !!

First one is of the remains of the base for some of the maschines for building the site. Base for maschine for mixing the concrete, the word in English is that just Mixing Maschine ???

Next picture talks for itself:

"When we are talking of concrete" see this inscription found nearby.
It is on a field where there is concrete roads and foundations for barracks.

best regard
Kurt.

Some more photos from the "Linde stellung" at Lista:

The woods have taken back the position, leaving a dark and spooky light to everything, even during bright days!

The next picture is:

The picture is most likely from Fanø, but it is simmilar to the one in Batterie Femhøje, a Funkmessgerät Typ. Freya - with two antennasystems, one for horisontal and one for vertikal use ( height and sidewards )

Last picture:

Close up of the WR, and i have a correction to what i have said earlier.

The position of the antenna ( upwards ) is not only on pictures taken after the war. It is also seen om pictures taken during the war, because the germans positioned the antenna in this way, to protect it from the effect of the wind.

Kurt.
