Hello Jos

I think we have to share the list of the bunker type 1 in 2 parts: the one's with observation tower that were always use (only) by the Heeres-Kust Abteilung and the one without the observation part that was probably a HQ VF bunker.
For Belgium, all the Type 1 with Observation part are related to a HKAA or HKB
For Belgium I have for the type 1 HKB:

Duinbergen (HQ E676)
Zeebrugge, before remodeling (Obs HKB 3./769)
Wenduine (Obs early HKB 2./823) or (HQ HKAA 769)
Bredene (HQ E679)
Raversijde (early HQ HKAA 823)
Middelkerke (HQ AR.781)
Westende (Obs early HKB 3./826)
Nieuwpoort (early HQ HKAA 826)
Nieuwpoort (Obs early HKB 1./826)
De Panne (HQ HKAA 826) or (Obs HKB 2./826)
