a noteworthy detail
All emplacements have one antenna for radiocommunications which is quite rare

as you can see the bettung is not constructed in one part but there are sevaral parts joined togehter , looks like theu constructed the amo rooms and crew rooms as separate blocks and added the connection walls in between
as for the little mortar pits here , opened by whom doesn t matter , i m glad they where open when we where there
so all who opened them thanks
the first type

the entrance was closed with a wooden door in the war

Then another scoop for these two batteries
there are some 501 and 502 there
the 501 are the old westwall versions (so constructed in the beginning of the war before the actual building of the AW starts)
We can see this on the emplacement of the stove (heater)
501.jpg
obvious the 501 has no antennas at all , only telephone connections
the 502 ... this one has two antennas but built in a special way ... normally we see these antennas placed here when it is the PC ... so this one looks to be the old pc of the battery
it has only one stove and not the usual two , it has also thelephone connections

Yes lots of bunkers aren t measured .... but we ll continue and i know not many french measured bunkers , they use always the SHM plans in their books ....that is why we measure them and of course find lots of errors in these books
but we can t change anything exept giving our plans away as men like you wants them and hope that some are popping up in books in the future
(Which we don t mind at all) we like to share
