The amount of 5 cm KwK and 7.5 cm L.A.G. is very changing between 1943 and 1944 at Etretat .

What about this one? The emplacement looks different but we still see the same house in the background. Is it the same emplacement but after some destructive action ? :?

1940 (and it has to be Summer with the bathing suits) is a bit early for a bunker on a beach, isn't? Are sure it is not 1941?
