Hi Sturm,
I think it is a Belgium one.
They were known for their very good and nice camouflage.

Hello

No one for the gun in the 671 , but I have a other one at W.n. 94 ( near Isigny in Normandie ) there are a few St bunkers completly filled in with soil , one bunker in particular keeps me busy . Here a photo of this bunker , in many books the bunker is called a Regelbau 629 but I have my doughts because the openings for the frame for the door that
should be later placed in this bunker are at the outside of the bunker and most 629 I have seen the doors are placed
more inside the bunker . Any idea's are welcome also other picture's of 629 and 504 are welcome and also this bunker
has four airintake between the door and "unterstellraum" .

Please note also the severe damage on the left of the picture .

Photo = Alain Chazette

Nice photo jos! Don't know about the four air in/outtakes but I think I see recesses for another door on the inside too. Maybe steel door on the inside and wooden ones on the outside. in/outtakes can differ from bunker to bunker, some 622s don't have six but four etc etc. The space between both doors looks like a regular 629.

Jos,

I think it's a 10,5 cm K331(f). I can distinguish a shield and the thickness of the barrel seems to match.

Here is a 10,5 cm K331(f) in casemate for comparison (but I don't know the location):

@ Arthur , Yes that is a good option but I can't find any airintake on my 629 picture's
any other options who has good picture's of a 504 ??

@ Emmanuel , the dark shade in the 671 look to me as a gunhouse , but it could be wishfull thinking .

Evening Jos and Arthur

Attached a shot of another 629 with visible air intakes!
Checked my archive but to much green stuff covering the front of the 504 at Mont Lambert when I dropped by. :D
