Hi

This is an Innenanschlußdose, used in ringstande (when integrated in bunkers) and in the working rooms or offices in bunkers. There were version for 1 or 2 connections and with different closing mechanisms. These boxes were used to connect a fieldtelephone or an office telephone (Tischfernsprecher 38). The boxes have somewhat the same function
as the before mentioned Anschlußstelle, but were more generally used inside the bunker.

Reference to the picture 10m³ ventilator by AvB, it is correct that it was driven by electrical power but for emergency use (loss of power) it would be operated by hand cranks. Two shafts, one of each side, are visible on the picture. The same system was/is in use in the BW50 (Shelter in German barracks’s)

Hi,

cabinets.JPG
The cabinets are for hanging gas-contaminated clothes into safely, before
cleaning yourself and entering the bunker after a gas-attack.
The large closet on the left is the normal Gasschrank for pants and jackets. The small ones are perhaps for boots or personal belongings.
The red closet should also be part of this system.

In what kind of bunker dit you saw this Erik
(because of the number of closets)


skap.JPG
Same as above. Placed in a Gasschleuse, so a Gasschrank.

In a 633, but inside the bunker! these cabinets are located in the ventilation room, so you have to go through the crew room to get there......

Same as above. Placed in a Gasschleuse, so a Gasschrank.
A guy at a musem in Bergen had a simlilar one.....
He had a name for this, but I can`t remember it, but according to
him, its for radioset(s)

This cabinet however, doesn`t look like something for clothes at all....

Inside, there is a cable reel, attacments for portable antenna, and lots of small shelves. The cabinet is in two parts, and the lower part is atleast 3-4 cm thick, and has a very unusual lock in front......This really reminded me of a fireproof "vault"

I have no Photo of it :roll:
But this drawing made out of mt memory.....

Hi Erik,

Well the first cabinet has to be a Gasschrank. We have a similar one at our museum and Dan also has one. On Dan's Schrank there's a nice text going something like: Schrank fuer Gasversaute Kleidung (Cabinet for gas-contaminated clothes). It's indeed a mystery why it's located in the Lufterraum. On the other hand the gaslock would almost be to small to hous this all...

The Second cabinet is then a Funkgeräteschrank. I didn't recognise it the first time because of the angle in which the picture was taken.
This cabinet is the one mentioned on the lid of the Funkinnenanschlußdose. This one can also be seen in the Antenneraum of the 618 (in Arendal) where it's still on its original place. Indeed, in this cabinet the Festungsantenna, the interior-devices of the Funk-Innenanschlussdose and some transmitters or recievers were stored and only taken out when they were in use.

Hi,

Seems to me that this was the electrical fuse box.
Should be the same as one of the boxes Erik E posted in his
mail from 6-10-2004 (e.g. EL12)
