Hello,

What is the reason that AMMER is not filled:
Is Jobourg / AMMER, L 485 A, not correct ?

Hi Lenco,
I belive this is the first info I have got on the bunker at Ammer. Do you have photos from the bunker to support the type you give here? And if you have, do you have any photos of the mast foundations, cable entries and anything else of the bunker?

It would be very nice to ad it to the list! :D
My complete list is at my work place so I will first be able to check up on my data tomorrow.

Regards,
Morten

The last two bunkers are probably going to be hard to identified. The one at Juist is in use for bats so perhabs the type is possible to determin. But the one at Sylt I have no idea about. I have found no traces of it.. Hope somthing shows up in the future.

But this is as far as the list has come :) :

hi morten, just for the record:
kwartellaan is the name of a street near the complex where the mammut was built.
maybe it's better to call it ''scheveningen/moritz''

in the back: the mammut radar
in front: destroyd houses by a fallen back V2 rocket.

greetings, tim

Hey Tim,
I have on your request changed Kwartellaan to Scheveningen. This is more correct and if there are more place names that could be better I would love to know. I haven't uploaded an updated list but will do that when/if more data is gatheret :)

regards,
Morten

In the book; Regelbauten Der Luftwaffe, their is a drawing of the L485 at Romo, page 126.
In plan; left-under , you can see a small hall leading to something?
Does anybody know where too, is it a "notausgang" ?

Hi,
Indeed it is. The entrance is about 1,5 m above the floor.

Hi SES,
thanks for the quick reaction.
After looking at other L-bunkers i doubt that it is a Notausgang.
Their is a Zuluft-canal so i supose this could be a Abluft-canal, because both are connected to the Rückkühlerraum.
Does anybody have pictures or drawins of a Rückkühler?
