More Regelbauten coming right at you.

-R119
-Battery commanding bunker
-Stp Gr Mt St-Frieux

HQ of the I/1245 HKAR.

Image

-R196
-Water pumping and storage bunker
-Stpgr Nord, Wn 024, Le Havre

Very rare type of waterbunker. Located in a weird Wn with a 671SK in a valley and in front of the 671SK a 607.

Image

-R606
-Garage for Searchlight
-Stp Corbière, Jersey

Very common type on the Channel Islands, quite rare in the rest of the Wall. Or aren't the Channel Islands part of the Wall after all?

Image

-R628
-Bunker for personnel
-Wn Aubins Fort, Jersey

With the addition of an extra entrance on the side which made the whole point of the 628 (am Steilhang) useless.

Image

-R637
-Measuring post
-Stp Malervilla, Wissant

In the background a R600.

Image

-R667

-Stp Dannes Plage, Boulonge area

Image

-R669

-R670
-Casemate for 10.5cm K331 (f)

Built all over the Channel Islands as beach defending casemate. This particular example is connected to a small Hohlgang with its entrance on the back of the rocks.

Image

-R689
-Casemate for 17cm Kanone
-Batterie Nord, 12./HKAR 1245, Berck

In my opinion one of the most beautiful designs of all Regelbauten.
On Mt St-Frieux you'll find 4 more.

Image

-R703
-Casemate for 8.8cm PAK 43
-Pantherstellung, Veenendaal, Holland

Probably only built in Holland in the Pantherstellung, a defence line against attacks from the east to the center of Holland. Nine examples remain.

Image

A simple ammo bunker in a huge radarsite.

M-195
Open emplacement for medium coastal artillery
MKB 1/503 Stavanger(II), western Norway
Reused by the Norwegian army. Equipped with 10,5cm Skc/32 until 1995. The Germans built these for 12cm Bofors guns.

Very rare emplacement. At this stage of the war, most guns were placed in casemates, but in nome occations, open emplacements were still needed.

I don't think that's a L 410A.

Check out this one on Cap d'Antifer:

Your pic looks like a L 410A without Nahkampfraum.

Hehe, nice optical illusion. I hope I'll visit this site in august. Or is Naerland not near Naerbö?
