A model "bunker 1" at Stp. Duinbergen, must be taken in the early years
of the war because it's missing the extra building in the back . ( Ebay )

Hello Jos,

The picture is labelled Inf Reg 735 from the 715 I.D. The 715 I.D has been created only on 8th of May 1941 and was reported in position in S-W France (Gironde-Bayonne area) around Fall 1941. So I guess the picture has been taken around Summer 1941.

In the summer 1941, only the HQ of the EEA676 was in position in Duinbergen, the HQ of the HKAA823 came later and used most probably the HKB leitstand type 2 built next to the this type 1

what could be the function of this obs bunker in this old batterie
He could not see the sea , the dunes are higher
the only thing you van really see is your own batterie ? so maybe for the batterie chef to look at his guns ?
and no rearview at all
