Regelbau 648 discovered near Audierne
In September the remains of a 648 for Czech Einschartenturm were discovered in the Panzerstützpunkt at Lézongar, near Audierne, France.
The Czech-gone-German cupola type 817P5 was already partly cut up, but the original three Czech embrasures can still be seen. Only three intact 648 exist, all of them located in the Festung Saint-Nazaire, so this is a rare find. The whole bunker is still there but will be partly demolished to make place for a bicycle track and the reinforcement of the coast. The cupola will disappear too. If anyone has more info on where the turret will go, let me know.
