Trondenes peninsula is a real heaven, with of course the famous ‘Adolf’ gun, a 40.6cm naval gun. The now reveiled turret covers the entrance road to the battery. The setup of a Sechsschartenturm covering a […]

Some time ago I’ve posted the video by Steve Powell of the Festungspak plate at Wn Schonbucht Mitte on Guernsey. This time I made my own video in Batterie Ørlandet, better known as Austrått Fort in Norway. A group of Czech volunteers restored the gun and accessories to mint condition.

Every day I watch several forums from all over Europe to see what’s happening in the bunker community. It’s a time consuming business but well worth the time because without it I wouldn’t have known about restauration projects in Poland, demolitions in Norway, dug up bunkers in Holland or any other activity in Europe on the […]
