Hi
wurzburg riese talinn1.jpg
wurzburg riese talinn2 - op stelling 1927.jpg
wurzburg riese talinn3.jpg
Found these 3 photo's on a Russian site. I had to translate the entire article (google translate) to have an idea of it's location; if the translation is correct this should be situated on a Island near Talinn... and then the site failed, so no link to share...

I started http://westduinmammuts.blogspot.nl asking: Why 2 radars so close together?
This has been discussed in more places, but is there an answer the experts agree upon?

Edit 17-03-13
See http://www.haagsebeeldbank.nl/beeldbank ... d=Savornin where the large picture below is mirrored.
This could change the whole story.

Hi,
IMHO it is quite elementary - one is a decoy.

That's what I wondered, studying this picture, but nobody said it so clearly before!
See the rectangular black thing on the horizon to the right; to the left the MORITZ.

After http://www.fortificatieforum.nl/viewtop ... =18&t=3543 I'm not sure.
Were /are the dummies also listed? Nearby we had fake airfield Ockenburg.

Hi Erwin,
Thanks for sharing. Please note the base for another one in front.
And it is still a mystery what the W-R was doing there.

Hi,

Searching for Funkmess-Stellung "Cassiopeia" in Italy, I found with GE a Würzburg-Riese-socle on the island of Capri at Punta Carena.

Does anybody have any information, if this socle was a part of "Cassiopeia" or was it a "Kriegsmarine-Stellung"?

Please take a look at this Panoramio-picture:

Best wishes
Rolf

Hi Rolf,
It is a typical location for a KM radar.

Maarten from FF found another shot of the WR at Arnhem. Also from Gelders Archief (geldersarchief.nl)

Hi Erwin,
Interesting shot thanks for sharing, and we have still to figure out the purpose and function of this radar.

Since the sockel is still there on the photo I think It was ad hoc placed just before the Battle of Arnhem. The new position had maybe something to do with the redeployment of the V2 launch sites from Den Haag to Hellendoorn. Although I have no idea if there is any connection between the V2's and Würzburg. Just throwing 2 cents up in the air.
