Covered Tobruk on the coast of Constanza.

On the coast of Constanza in Romania near the old casino some MG bunkers were built during the war. One of them is a Tobruk bunker, covered with a hood and attached to an underground tunnel system. More on bunkers in Romania. See http://aedificium.rockhall.ro/

In September the remains of a 648 for Czech Einschartenturm were discovered in the Panzerstützpunkt at Lézongar, near Audierne, France. The Czech-gone-German cupola type 817P5 was already partly cut up, but the original three Czech embrasures can still be seen. Only three intact 648 exist, all of them located in the Festung Saint-Nazaire, so this is […]

The Stichting Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen can add a new bunker to their list. The location at the Badhuisweg (Scheveningen/The Hague) becomes something of a museum park now. The bunker is a Regelbau 622 was part of  Wn 318, which housed the Waffen-SS Verteidigungsstab of the Stützpunktgruppe Scheveningen. The local government gave permission to dig up […]

Seen on Axis History. Festung Guernsey has completed another very successful dig at Stp. Langenberg. This time we were at the Type 633 M19 bunker to see what was buried in the extensively damaged turret room. Once all of the backfill and blown up concrete had been removed we were pleasantly surprised with large parts […]

Watch your toes! Or hey, tourists actually use it. 628, Skagen. (Photo: Henk Adriaanse 2007)

Ok, the story appeared on an engineers website but still it’s an alarming message. Without mentioning any historical value of the bunkers, Poul Erik Faurholm of CMP Demolition A/S makes a cold calculation on how the bunkers could be demolished. The only question is: “Who’s going to pay for this all”. I hope Danish government officials have […]
