Jos,

It the LS Bunker on Boulevard Clemenceau which still exists today (at No. 160) as part of a building that belongs to the French Marine Nationale and is visible on Google Streetview:

The picture comes from this site:

Hi Dirk,

It's not really a LS Bunker. According to the few documents I have, it was the headquarter of Seenotdienst Le Havre. I visited the bunker, wich is still a military area (so I can't post any picture). The small observation room was demolished when the Marine Nationale building was build over the roof of the bunker. Here a link with a well known photo from Bundesarchiv : http://havrais-dire.over-blog.com/article-36524699.html.

Best regards from Paris

Sébastien

Dear Jos and Dirk,

The bunker had a rectangle shape, with one entrance on the small side oposite to observation room. Inside is a main corridor with room on both sides. In the last room there is an access to the destroyed observation room. In front of this room, in the other side of the corridor, is an emergency exit (in an other room). I don't know if we have an other access from the obeservation room. Because the bunker is used by French navy, there is no remain or trace of any original equipment, except heavy doors (one in the entrance, the other in the access of former observation room).

Best regards from Paris,

Sébastien

Hello Sébastien

Can you confirme that these picture's are taken the naval radarsite at Cap de al Heve ?

Photo's are from Ebay ??

Regards Jos
On the second picture (with the car), we can see Konteradmiral Friedrich Rieve (middle) and Konteradmiral Hans-Udo von Tresckow.
They also appear on other photos you posted of the same event.
