Inland batteries

The shores at La Baule and St Nazaire were covered by at least 10 inland batteries. All had a dedicated observationbunker of different types. We have found two bunkers of type 143 in St Nazaire. This type was only built in Holland and here at St Nazaire. The ones in Perriere and at the camping Bel Air in Bonne Source are noted in the left hand menu. The batteries "Adolf" up and including, "Fritz", are part of the main location La Baule.

  • "Gustav", (N 58) was at Les Ecobues and probably demolished.
  • "Heinrich", (N 57) is near a little lake at Carriere de Rouallais
  • "Ida", (N 55) is at a villaparc in Landreau.

We make a sidestep to a bunker at the airfield St Nazaire Montoir.
