First question :)

Did you enter the observation room via a stair, or was it on the same level as the rest of the rooms??

Ok, nothing more from me for now, if anyone still awake.
I do hope that some can come up with the correct name/number for this one, it would have been fun.
I have looked at german maps, they say there is a battery of 10,5cm guns in this area.British intelligence maps say that there are 6 guns in the area.
To make it short, any coments are welcomed(also if any think that i should reduce the amount of pictures in the future.. :oops: )
regards

Hello Erik.
No i didnt notice any holes in the roof, must admit it was more or less a question to keep balance in there.
The observation room was difficult to enter, had to crawl in on top of the rubbish, but the height from the floor in the other room support that, it was quite some height up to that opening.

Hello!

Today I recieved more information which identifies this bunker as a R 615!

As Peter H mentioned earlier, this bunker was until now not officially exsiting! Thanks to Stril and his anonymous friend which have provided information leading to identification of this bunker. :)

Judging by German maps from 1943-44, the bunker served as firecontrolpost for 2 fieldartillery batteries, covering the northern approach of "Festung Bergen". The batteries were 2. and 3./269 Artillerie regiment of the 269 Infanterie division.

Hej Erik and Stril !!

I have a little question - what about the R615 which Rudi Rolf mentions in his book. There he is stating that there is / was a R615 in Holland ???

"Artillerie Beobachtungsstand mit schräger Deckenplatte" - Page 160

Maybe there is´nt one in the NL. ??? Or what ???
