Hello All,

I think that these objects must be from Fla series - for sure a bunker for electrical equipment used in these types of batteries in Poland was Fla 1, gun emplacements are very similar to Fla 14, and sometimes you can see command bunkers Fla 16.

Slight modifications can be seen in these bunkers - ammo storage in Mielin battery has an entrance in different place.

Alkali - do you have a plan of command bunker from Ustka?

Does anyone have, or does anyone know where to find plans of following Fla bunkers: 2,3,24,24a,25,26,27,33,33a,51,52,53,60,66,72,77,78,79,104,108 ??????
I will guess the answer - in BA-MA Freiburg :-) ?

regards
Maciej

Hm..... Not easy to translate into any language!
"Standarised bunker" is pretty close.......

The Regelbau bunkers were made from standarized drawings, with standarized steelparts and equipment. This gave a very effective building process, instead of calculating thikness, reinforcement +++ for every bunker.

Thank you Erik. that made sence. I've seen so many bunkers that all look the same, and if i see the word regelbau with norwegian eyes i can almost see a meaning. to translate from German to Norwegian is more easy than from English.

Hello all,

Here is a little contribution from Holland;

- R611
- embrasured emplacement for fieldguns
- Marine Flakbatterie Nordmole, Hoek van Holland

The chair you see on the top is part of a local art-route. It used to be just a "table", as the Dutch navy used this bunker for a radar installation in the fifties and sixties, and the radar was on top of this "table". It is thus known locally as the "table bunker".
On the left of the bunker you can see part of the tankwall that ran around the batterie.

Regards, Mirjam

Another one:

- R118c
- Größer Sanitätsunterstand
- Stützpunkt XIX, Staelduinse bos, Westland.

This fieldhospital was originally a Westwall design. This hospital has a special entrance for people who were contaminated with gas. You can still see the sign next to the middle entrance which says: Eingang nur für Gaskranken.
Stp XIX was the headquarters for the Festungcommandant, as Hoek van Holland became a Festung in 1943.

Hello Mirjam

Nice to see your contribution to this section also !!!

I like the pictures from Hoek van Holland - very interesting.
The R611 ( with the Chair on top ) what does that suppose "to tell" - i mean, what is the story of this "piece of art" ??

Regards
Kurt

Hello Kurt,

There is a yearly art route for the tourists to follow, it runs from the centre of our village to the beach, which is some miles away. The theme of that one was: sitting at the coast, and everywhere were different types of chairs, in the most unusual forms. This particular artist just added a "back" to the table and hey presto: a chair!
This bunker lies next to the Noorderpier, the Nordmole as the Germans called it, hence the name of the battery.
We from the Atlantikwall museum are hoping to get permission to start using this bunker for our museum as well!

Regards and a happy new year to you all,

Mirjam

Hanstholm, 38 cm. Batterie
Ammunitionsbunker

Big ammunition depot with 3 rooms. The bunker has one opening in each end, making it possible for small ammunition trains to run through it.

Hi Kurt !

I was just browsing throught the pictures in this topic and saw your contribution on a S468. As you know Hanstholm is one of my big interests and I can see that the picture is not showing a S468. The picture shows the southwestern entrance/exit of the ammunitions railway on the bunker for cannon 1 in 2/MAA 118.

Unfortunately I haven't a picture of my own to show, but the following link takes you there:

Hello Peter

Of cource you are right, thanks for correcting.

It is that ammo bunker i was referring to, as the text also says - i must have added a wrong picture to that one, sorry !!

( But you know - "One who dos´nt do anything, dont make mistakes - I make mistakes" ) :lol:
