Another dug up on Guernsey
Festung Guernsey got permission to dig up the M19 mortar bunker at Stp Rotenstein. Another one in the row of successes by the group of volunteers.
The bunker type 633 was hidden under the parking place at Fort Hommet. It has been opened some 25 years ago but now Festung Guernsey will keep it open en ultimately open it to the public in the future. The armoured turret for the weapon was scrapped in the early fifties and the removal left a huge hole in the bunker. The room for the mortar is heavily damaged, however the damage to the rest of the bunker is light, just a few cracks in the concrete.
