Research Wn 292 Goldregen at St Léonard near Boulogne-sur-Mer

Post by Stp Leo » 05 Mar 2019 12:33

Hello everyone,

I am looking for measurements and photos of the bunkers (R 621 and L 430A) of the Wn 292 Goldregen at St Léonard near Boulogne-sur-Mer. The bunkers are buried today and I visited the place in February 2018, too late !

Hello everyone,

Thank you very much for your documents ! Beautiful photos and drawing ! Dirk, the R 621 was still opened in 2005 ? Have you got photos of the shelter ?

Hello Dirk,

Thank you ! Beautiful pictures ! I think that the access where you went inside is buried today but I am not sure... The pipe on the roof was for the periscope ?

Hello everyone,

This afternoon, I went to see the bunker. The only access has a height of 15 cm... I closed my eyes, I sliped and... I am into the R 621 ! The ambience was glaucous because there are sofas very damaged in the bedroom... Dirk, sorry, when I saw your post, I had already finished my trip, sorry...
