It is Dutch "G-kazemat". Armoured cupola for HMG, about 800 installed, only a few of them are preserved.
Thanks a lot for your help, Ondrej. :wink:
In this case, it seems the the armoured steel cupola is completely covered with cement. The firing sector of the machine gunners must be very small according to the opening.... :roll:

The cupola is covered in tar as it should be according to the construcionplans.
The B and G casemates were designed to give flanking fire, that way they were more effective and easier to camouflage (G-Casemates have a low profile).

Could it be the 671 of Equeville with the annex?

That was my first thought too Jack but the typical front does not fit Ecqueville .

Jos,
Then I would go for Le Treport.
The southernmost 671 to be exact.

Hello

Is that Tre. 016 Mers Les Bains?

Is it gone today? There is still one under the monument, right?

The first photo is a Polish bunker at the east. The last photo is a "Molotov line" bunker with its armoured embrassures not installed.
