Batterie Todt - some kind of "Schrank" - possible for soldiers personal equipment, supposed to be situated in soldiers quarters - so it is not in its right place here.

Very nice!

What's that chainmail hanging on the wall? Strong camouflage net? Looks like steel chainmail...

Also, do we have any schematics for that FS35? (The telephone)

Hello

Yes - it is camouflage steelnetting to hang down in front of the opening in the large guncasematte.

As for details and schematics on the phone, maybe some other can help out there??

Some other pics. from the museumsbunker in Silkeborg.

Hello

Yes - The "Silkeborg Bad" area was a Health Recreation Center and was occupied by the Germans for the use as HQ for "Wehrmachtsbefehlshaber Dänemark" General H. v. Hanneken and later Generaloberst Lindemann.

@kstdk

"Yes - it is camouflage steelnetting to hang down in front of the opening in the large guncasematte."

Are you sure, that it is a camouflage netting? It looks like a netbarrier used in harbours or around ships to protect them agaist torpedo and/or other underwater attacks.

Hello

Camouflage netting ?? Maybe it originally has ben used for just what you say, but i have seen it used for sort of "steelfront" hanging just inside the guncasematte as well. Or it looks like the same - so, i am not sure !

I have a pic. showing just like that, i will try to find it, so we can see if it is the same thing !!

the steel netting mentioned (and posted photo of it) was intended to stop concrete chunks from ricocheting when the bunkers where hit...much like chain shirts of medieval age protected the vbody from sword hits..
a secondary use was to hang camouflage from it...


just my two cents
