Hi,

Can anyone provide the sizes of this 'Schrank' used in bunkers?

Hei

What was this type of cabinet used for?
They can be found in several rooms in bunkers, gas lock, crew room and ventilation room are places I have observed them.
In the gas lock, cabinet paintet red, Entgiftungsgeräte?

Thanks for all help.

Thanks!

I think this picture is from an R633 in Norway.
The cabinet has a red color here, other function than "Lebensmittel"?
Does anyone know what the top cabinets in the picture were used for?

Hi,
Could it be they served in the gas lock for storing water bottles?

The other ones in the forelast picture look like personal lockers to me?
