Hello

Really nice positions. If there were 8 to 10 of them - they did have the area covered.

Do you know the caliber of the guns - 3,7 or 4,7 cm.?

Regards
Kurt

They demolished two Vf crewbunkers and two kwk positions when building a Art and Culture Center.

Hello,

I recently found this piece of thick glass in the domain Cabour (Stp 049, Belgium). It measures about 9cm high and some of the glass faces had a mirror or black finish. I was wondering if this could have been part of an opticssystem or anything else and if anyone recognizes it? Due to the history of the domain it is not necessarily German and/or WW2, it could as well be related to WW1 or of allied WW2 origin (British or Chech).
