Demolition in Croisic

Sad news from the demolition front again. A very rare L 406 on the Croisic peninsula will be demolished or at least altered. In 2010 new houses already closed in but now the bunker has to disappear (completely or under a new house). The faith of the Vf bunkers around this one is unknown. A […]

What does a bunker sound like when it’s being demolished? At Péristyle near Lorient Kriegsmarine shelters are being demolished to make place for a new residential area.

Sperrfeuer

Although the two Sechsschartentürme of Pen-Bron (Bretagne, France) are not in the best shape, they are quite complete and show some of these details.
