Special Westwall bunker dug up for investigation
At Dillingen in the Saarland, a very special bunker for Dreischartenturm was excavated last week.
The information collected can be used for a possible future monumental status. The bunker is a very special Regelbau 132b. It’s a bunker for Dreischartenturm in Baustarke A (3,5 meter thick walls). This particular bunker was prepared to be incorporated into an underground tunnel system interconnecting other bunkers to defend the bridge over the Saar river. The tunnels were never built but extra entrances and shafts in the bunker were found.
The bunker’s turret was blown out after the war and the inside of the bunker was heavily damaged by American troops, blowing up ammo. Still, some relics and original fittings were found, both German and American.
Unfortunately after the publication of this news on several forums, illegal diggers tried to get into the bunker. This is why we can’t show any recent photos. More info via Axis History Forum.
