Nice one at Nutria Jos :)

Would there in the picture archive from Dirk Peeters, Benny Vermeire and Tom Oliviers also be a foto of the compensator room and perhaps also one of the four mast foundations for the L 485 A i Nutria? Thanks.

Only three more L485's to figure out!!! I will post an updated list this afternoon :D

Interessting thread :)
I went through my photos of the L485A at Tanne, but unfortunately I didnt have any showing the mast foundation.
You can only see the hole where they are located. Please also see detail photo of the top of one of the chimneys.

hi morten, about moritz:
unfortunatly no drawing of the bunker.
the cable compensator in the Vf bunker is indeed excactly the same as the one in the V143 .
the subframes in scheveningen are the same as the ones in wijk aan zee (marine)

at moritz there was no entrance for equipment in the compensatorroom, but there was a room for generator built on the outerside of the bunker.

the foundations tor the mast were exactly the same the one shown on the picture of the L485 at LW. stutzpunkt blavand.

on the left the motorfoundation with chainweel , the same as the one at moritz.

about the operational and buildingdate:

according to our past away friend klaas van brakel† the bunker was built in spring 1942, and in the summer it was operational (selfdestruction sprengladungen were in place).
after the big reorganisation in 1943 it became a 3th ordnung stellung, and rapported to ZANDER

@ C. Hoff: Thank you for the effort. Too bad you couldn't find eny pics of the foundations. But nice ones of the chimneys :D

@ Tim: This is realy good information. And it still supports my teory about the compensators :wink:
And thanks to †Klaas van Brakel† and you we are now facing what might be the first Mammut bunker of them all!! But that depends on the one at MOLCH!

I will post some of the pictures I have on MOLCH later. But without source! :oops:
