Kriegsmarine command bunkers

Post by SES » 12 Jun 2004 13:09

A friend of mine wroye:

Hello

I've posted this mail earlier. In desperation that I didn't get any
answers, I've chosen to post it again. I need ALL the information I
can get on this particul type of bunker. So please help me with
whatever you may know about this. Thank you

In Frederikshavn, Denmark, it was recently dicided that the
bunkermuseum of Bangsbo Museum is going to be moved.

For the past 10 years the bunkermuseum has been sited in a Fire
Control Post regelbau Fl 244 at the former German heavy anti-
aircraft-battery – Flak- und Sperrbatterie Frederikshavn Nord. At
this place there is an anti-aircraft-bunker regelbau Fl 243 with a
10,5 cm gun of the original type.

The new place for the bunkermuseum is at the former Stützpunktgruppe
Frederikshavn Süd on Pikkerbakken in the South end of Frederikshavn.
More precisely in the MarKo-bunker regelbau M 152. The main reason
for the relocation is the desire for a closer connection to the
whole area of Bangsbo, but it´s also an opportunity to link the
museumbunker to the ongoing promotions of the installations on
Pikkerbakken. Among other tings; the 15 cm guns of the Danish Light
Cruiser Niels Juel, Bangsbofort, and a new naturtrail.

The plans for the future, are that the bunkermuseum in time will be
extended to count more renovated bunkers. We hope that the whole
area eventually will become open to the public.

The moving of the museum and the renovation of the MarKo-bunker is a
project of Bangsbo Museum alone. However, the Navy has expressed
their assistance.

I am an unsalaried consultant on the project. Therefore I have a
plea for you. It is our intention to have the MarKo-bunker appear as
accurate as possible anno 1945. I need all the information I can get
on this type of bunker; the arrangement, the installations, colours,
the covering of walls and loft, and so on.

We started up the project this week discussing ideas for the museum.
Next step will be to have the bunker cleared, sandblasted, painted,
and install electricity. The plan is that the new bunkermuseum will
be opend on May 2005.

I'll be grateful for all the help I can get.


I can only support Kenneth's plea. If you don't have information
which can be directly related to a M 152 lets try to dig out
information which is related to Kriegsmarine command and control.
Any picture/drawing which depicts the interior of any MARKO, Marine
UGRUKO or Ortungs Zentral (M 152, Fl 250, Fl 241, V 142, V 151, V
193 or indeed V 196) would be of help. E.g.: What did the plotting
table in an Auswerte Raum look like? How were the plots displayed?
What did the Kommando Raum look like. We don't have a single photo
or drawing depicting any of these rooms.

Thank you Patrice.
I guess I was not too specific. What we are looking for is the interior of the bunkers as they looked DURING THE WAR. Immediate Post War information would do nicely :-)
Kind regards

Hello!

What a coincidence :)
I have an appointment to see the M-152 bunker of MarKo Stavanger next week! This has been on military ground since 1945, and still is!
Hopefully they haven`t used it too much!

I`ll let you know what comes out of it!
