Hi
The 1st position of HKB 1./826 (Groenendijk) has a modified version of the HKB Leitstand Type 1 close to the beach. The observation room is not built forward but at the top of the bunker. It was located to the east of Stp von der Tann (2nd position).
Regards
Von Kluck

Hi
Is it a HKB Leitstand Type 2 ? For what ? Stp 717 E ? There is another Beobachtung bunker next to it. Position is Stp Blankenberge-Mole.

I'm re-drawing all known SK/FK leitstände of both Marine and Heer in sketchup on the same scale, after which i compare them. For now i have two groups of leitstände with simularity's.

This study after the early marine and heeresbauten is no study of my own, just a comparisson with information i gather from AHF, Dirk P archive, bunkers we measured ourselves, SHM-france, Service Marc, ABL, BRV archive, BAMA and NARA.
FK.png
One group has leitstande with global inner measurements of 1450x715cm
- 1x StP Gabelweihe
-1x Stp Lindemann

The second group has global inner measurements of 1000x560cm
- 1x Tirpitz
- 1x Fort Lapin
- 1x Hamilton
- 1x Ramin

I compare the inner measurements because the baustärkes of the bunkers may vary very often of those early types. with thicker baustärkes you get other outside measurements while the inside remains the same

regards
Tom

the colors i use are the different baustärkes, this idea comes from Pascal's book 'Atlantikwall Veldboekje" (just giving him the credits for this awesome method of working)

Hello Tom,
Thank you for the comparison of the different SK Leiststände!
Isn't the one of La Pernelle the same or a very similar type Like the one of Hamilton or Fort Lapin?

Regards

Daniek
