Another picture with the triple mounted Brens:

The concrete ring seems to have been positioned on top of the original French bunker which would be later destroyed to built an SK casemate at MKB Nordmole. See the red arrow I have added below on this ebay picture:

Was this concrete ring built by the Germans after June 1940 or by the French or the Bristish before June 1940 ? :?

I think we need to read III./Rgt Leuze i.e. 3rd battalion (not a company since a Roman numeral) of Regiment Leuze.

There was indeed a German high ranking officer named Walther Leuze in Le Havre, better known as Generalmajor Leuze, Festungskommandant Le Havre from February 1943 to March 1944.
But more importantly here, I think, is the fact that Leuze was commanding officer of I.R. 687 (336 I.D.) from April 1941 to April 1942 (source: article from Alain Chazette about Gen. Leuze in Magazine 39/45 No. 197). And the 336 ID occupied Le Havre and the area from May 1941 to May 1942, therefore, at the same time as Leuze commanded IR 687.

From this information, I deduct that:
III./Rgt Leuze makes sense
It refers to III./IR 687 with IR 687 commanded by Leuze
The pictures were probably taken then between May 1941 and April 1942. :idea:

Hello Jos,

It is the Digue Sud : the tower in the background is French (it's for a searchlight). The bunker in foreground is German : it is the shelters with the famous paintings (IE "Kein karoussel").
