Dutch museum awarded
The Dutch bunker foundation WN2000 in IJmuiden won the Gouden Betonmolen (Golden Concrete-mixer!). The bunker museumwas chosen as winner by the members of the Dutch Fortificatieforum, for the newly rebuilt trenches in the dunes. A thing never accomplished on this scale anywhere else.
The Gouden Betonmolen is an initiative by the forum to award people or groups who are doing a special thing for fortifications in Holland. Although it was just fun initiative, local media discovered the news and already call it the National Golden Concrete-mixer!
The first winner of the price was Stichting Bunkerbehoud for the complete renovation of the artillery observation bunker type 143 at the Oranjemolen in Vlissingen.
