Thank you.
The bunker with the periscope and the pakgarage is from the same area. The two identical(almost)positions on the photos added today is also from the same area.
Im not sure, but have always thought it was two mg positions. The german forces in the area used a lot of captured weapons.

Nice ones as always Stril. @Dirk: The periscope is of Czech origin. For some reason quite used in F and VF constructions in Norway. Never seen it elsewhere than Norway.

Hello
Been at HKB Reksteren-Nord for a couple of days doing som work. Interesting place with many local designs. Added a few photos. First and second photo from a weird observation bunker buildt in stone and concrete, roof with heavy logs, and added concrete with gravel. Third photo roof in another bunker. Roof made of logs, and gravel and concrete.

Hello

Here in Denmark we have a lot of small bunkers (soldiers accomodation in small wn. ) They are placed near small villages, farmhouses etc. etc where there were observationposts, small units and/or artillery positions in the 2´nd or 3´rd line of defence.

This one is in Fjaltring at the west coast approx 1 to 2 km´s inland from the coast.

Regards
Kurt

Hello
Some more of the smaller things. As seen in one of the photos straw is used to bind the concrete used inside a bunker.
