Hello All

A old photo from a bunker at Esbjerg , please note the name Marko II
this could indicate that there was also a Marko I ??

Hello

I think the Marko II is the M152 and Marko I is the V193.

Hi Jos and Kurt

I think you are right Jos. Have just been comparing pics of both entrances, and the only possible one is the M152.
Then the V193 must be the MarKo I I guess?!

Hi Jos

Yep. Both bunkers are still in use by the Danish National Guard, but normally it's not a problem to visit both of them if you make an appointment in advance. The V193 is simply huge! And much of the Lüftungsstystem is still in place.

Hi Jos

Very nice drawing! Thanks for sharing. :D
My first thought was an enlarged example of the ArKo in Hanstholm!
Do you have a date for this one?

The 675 is not visible and the building is an after war ad-on build between the 622 and 675. Don't think there is access to the 675.
On the map by kstdk the bunker to the far left is a type 502 and the one to the far right is a type 656.

The front of the 502 is a tunnel which was connected to the cellar of a multi storied building on the opposit side of the road.

I believe the garage build next to the 622 is a german one.

Morten
