Bunker in Thyborøn Denmark restored

A bunker for personnel in the Danish coastal town of Thyborøn has been restored to its original outside state. It’s an interesting one because it was camouflaged as warehouse, including fake big wooden doors and windows.

There is an exibition inside about “Skildpaddespionen” (The Turtlespy) a Danish employee (engineer) at the town hall who made double drawings of alle German bunkers and smuggled them out to the resistance. He got his name because of his mark – a pipe smoking turtle – on the copies of the drawings. (Source: Kurt on Axis History Forum)
