All I can see on your aerial photo of the submarine base(except the military aeras of course) was for me a magnific place to play from the 1964 to 1972 when I was younger. And always when I go back to Brest,I cannot resist to go there and remember all that days.

Hello All

I personally thinks that the bunker A and B with the red circles are "Luftschutzbunker" converted to hospitalbunker , called Ost- and Westbunker see my first post .
For the Seeko bunker , I think that bunker D fits the 1200 M3 and also the connection
to the underground passage makes me believe that is the one .
A other point is in favour of bunker D is the living quarters in bunker E near D .

@ hello French One do you have drawings of the bunker ??????

Regards Jos

Hi!

Short historical information for everybody who's interested... :wink:

After Germany invaded France in 1940, the german Kriegsmarine send a unit to Brest-area for Signal Intelligence.
This "MPHS Brest" (Marine-Peilhauptstelle) was near Plougonvelin.

Because they had to build up the site near Plougonvelin first, the Kriegsmarine send a small "pre-unit" to Brest to
do some "preparatory work" in SIGINT.

This small unit build up their receivers in a wing of the Marine-Schule until the building site at Plougonvelin
was finished.

Maybe to fill a gap in your private archives...

Best wishes
Rolf

Hi nordfriese, thanks for the info you bring.

When ready, near Plougonvelin, stood the MPHS, you said. I think it's Re 304.

This place is called Trémeur. Nowadays remain some ringstands ( 58d), some flakstands, and one special underground concrete shelter, probably used for transmissions (measured by our team : Belfra).

Aerial pictures show nothing visible in 1948, earthworks in 1952, and in 1961 :

See our plan of the shelter on Dirk's topic "be careful of using archives" page 2 (bottom) :

Would you have any other information on that ?
