Dear Ris,

I think that A. Chazette published an article about Pignerolle in a former issue of 39/45 magasine.

Regards,

S. Haule

Hello Ris ,

In a Memorial Album About Kriegsmarine from Heimdal Editions , they talk about Pignerolles

I think Alain Chazette could help you
Call it

the last picture i think was a double floor bunker and it could be a communication bunker as we see many antennas on the roof

Now what about the command post here with also his many antennas on the roof
picture of 1948
we see the shadows of the antennas still in place in 1948
also remarquable the command post is surrounded with concrete barracks (style Margival)
The barracks cover also the entrance defences
here we see the entrance defences almost free of the barracks
1971 b.jpg

as wee see (1971) the roof is repaered and all antennas (and fixations ) are removed and here they are destroying the last barracks
That Command post is not one bunker but three different ones connected toghether we see the joint good on the above pictures
one part of this huge complew was for the machines (can we speak of an E werk here ?
here is the plan (sorry no full optioned plan that we keep for ourselves)
PC plan 813.jpg

here the two entrances defences which one is incorporated in the barrack so this one seems not in use ...
