Hello

Nice to see that the gunracks on Arthur and Erik E photo's are placed in the wall and not on the wall , are these bunkers V.F. or St . ?

Hi

The "usual" gun rack posted by M19 MADMAL on 08 Nov 2008 isn't for guns, but for tools: showels, spades, axes, pickaxes etc. "Werkzeugsrahme".

You may also call it that, but "Werkzeugsrahme" is an officialy used term - see http://www.atlantik.nl/ausstattung.pdf - Blatt 15.

Hi Jens,

it´s no problem... we mean the same thing. In the Literatur and Vorschriften it is called "Werkzeugrahmen" the writing in all Bunkers I saw was "Werkzeugständer" and that is also the name we use in german.

Sorry I didn´t want to get a problem with you!

Markus
