"Ausweiche" M.P.A. Flandern

Post by jopaerya » 10 Jun 2017 08:46

Hello All

This week I visit the bunker of the alternate headquarters of the Marine Haupt Peil Stelle Flandern at kasteel Groenenberg, together with Korvetkapitein Jo Bergez , we entered the concrete bunker , we made picture's and made a good plan of this bunker . The bunker has
several rooms, also a machine room and a emercency exit. In documents from early 1944 orders were given to make a second location of the very important M.P.H.S. along the coast . Beside the bunker we also found a large concrete block with two steel U profile bars . Please note that this is privat property .

Regards Jos

Hi Jos!

I'm a little bit surprised that even the Ausweiche had a bunker!
Thanks for the pictures!

Best wishes
Rolf

Hi Jos,

what does ""Ausweiche" M.P.A. Flandern" stand for?
"ausweichen " = avoiding, evasion. There is no German term "Ausweiche".
BTW, it should also read "Marine - Hauptpeilstelle".

Regards,
Roman

Thanks Roman

It's not my native language , so I could be wrong. I have this word from a several document .
For the M.P.A. Flandern that is correct but it also had a M.H.P.S. Brugge at the same place .

Regards Jos

In this case "Ausweiche" is plan B or better location B.
A back up place.
Thanks,

Hi Roman,
"Ausweiche" is the same meaning as "Ersatz" in the meaning of replacement, after the loss of original place.

The Marinepeilabteilung Flandern was the substitution of the MPHS Brügge.

Hi everybody!

Bettika is close to right!

MPA (MarinePeilAbteilung) Flandern was located at Brügge.
As far as I know, the unit was resopnsible for DF (Direction Finding) in the whole area.
The MPHS (MarinePeilHauptStelle (also at Brügge)) was responsible for receiving and writing down the received information.

A "Ausweiche" was a "reserve position". It was a "fixed German Navy word" for a reserve bunker/position or whatever.
So it was a "Ausweichgefechtstand" for the "MarrinePeilAbteilung Flandern"

BTW
The proper name was Marinepeilhauptstelle!
Please don't mix the letters...

Please also see our friends in Austria for MPHS Neusiedl! (Sorry! German writing forum!)
