A photo from the other side W.N. 10 Tobruk 1 at Tu 10 ( St Nazaire ) , Regards Jos
Hi Jos, the Tobruk looks the same, but there is a Czechoslovak LMG vz. 26 at the second photo. Maybe the demonstration of different weapons in the same mount?

Yes you are right Ondrej

Maybe there were made to put in a manual ?? Photo's from Alain Chazette from the same location with different MG.

Regards Jos

Here is interesting photo which looks like AA Tobruk but Im not sure if it is Tobruk in general.
It doesn't look like concrete.

Hello,

do someone know a "Ringstand"-Typ that has only a 70cm round opening on top?
It seems to be a little small. i found 3 of them in a Marine Flak Batterie.

I stand in it and you can use a weapon but its not comfortable.

sincerly Christian

The Inside is full of Dirt.

4 of them are in a MFla Batterie. All are on the edge of different hills.
1 is near a Fla 51, 2 near a Fla 26 and 1 near a 10,5cm Bettung.
There where maybe more but the Batterie ist damaged very hard.
