Sechsschartenturm 35P8 in Trondenes

A, for me, unknown Sechsschartenturm 35P8 possibly on a 632 (where only three Schartes were used) was reveiled on Kystfort.com. 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 […]

Save the tower of Saint-Marc, send this letter

The city of Saint-Nazaire is known for its ignorance towards World War 2 heritage, destroying many unique bunkers and truncate the U-Boot bunker. But all of this would be peanuts compared to the plans to destroy the Marineflak headquarters at Saint-Marc. The bunker, a huge and very rare Fl 250, consists of a big bunker […]

Should France preserve the wall

A nice article on the BBC site asks the question: Should France preserve the remnants of the Atlantikwall. Interesting reading with some known French bunkerarcheologist names. It’s nice to read the positive comments on the article, but then again, it’s Great Britain where it seems there’s more care about heritage than in other parts of Europe. […]

Plans are to start digging in the new year, clean it up […]

Bunkersite.com starts BunkerBlog

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 […]
