A camouflaged 6-Schartenturm in the Westwall during the war because the shooting holes are sealed-off in a proper way . ( Ebay )

Hello,

So are the optics with the "bird eye" schnabel is emplaced with blind tip.

AFAIK the cover for the scharte is named "Winterblech". It also exists for the 7P7 and allows the inner not to be too saturated with humidity.

Hi,

This is not Ho.5 on Jersey as the entrance was a pre-war railway tunnel with granite entrance arches.

I don't think it is any tunnel entrance in the Channel Islands.

The tunnel entrance should be in the saar region, somewhere between Kirkel and Blieskastel, as the other photos sold with this one were taken in the village of hassel. There were lots of tunnels in this area.
