I agree with Erik, this is an open forum, and need to have an open mind, for me when i read the story about a new unique battery in the newspaper and on the internet felt a little wrong just as jos said, WO II batteries are about 60 to 65 years old, you can only rediscover it, but you know papers blow everything up in huge proportions.Erik E wrote:Please cool down a little dando!Yes, I have studied the Atlanic Wall... and English as well...
We are here to discuss the AW, not pick on each others writing skills!
This is an international forum, and you can`t expect that everyone knows English as good as you.
Ps: You forgot an "t" in Atlantic in your previous post
If you want an opinion about the batterie Maisy you are here at the right spot, but you have to read books and original documents and ofcourse talk with veterans, with the last way of accuiring information i am not very familiar, but i rather have the documents of that time than and use these at a base and use the gaps with the stories of veterans..........over 60/65 years i think we do not know we had this debate.
On the other hand did you contact bunkergoeroes like Rudi Rolf, Hans Sakkers, Dirk Peeters and Alain Chazette .
Pictures sometimes give more questions than answers, i know from my own experience, but i also know they are sometimes the answer to questions that you had years ago.
when you are restoring the site you are always welcome if you have questions about how or with what.
This forum is to make borders disapear, and it works you can see it in the members from all over the world posting questions and posting answers, but you got to have an open mind, you must use the things you didn't know in the following researches you make, never think you have seen everything, i always try to make copies of documents and use the info of these documents in my answers.
When you do research don't do it on your own, use your bunker friends and you acuire more material than when you do it on your own.
And yes i also want my own battery!!!!!!!!
but i'am not jealous.
