Gun casemate

The casemates for the 15 cm were of a special design. As room for personnel the lower part of a Fl 243 was used. The ammunitionstorage was from a M 158 and the gunroom was constructed with a concrete hood. This naval design can be found in more batteries in this part of the Awall, which were all manned by M.A.A. 201.

The Scharte has been closed and has to be kept closed. To prevent the sand from entering, they make a wall with sandbags on which later on a large picture of the original seaview will be shown.

One of the two connections from the M 158 to the gunroom.

A long tunnel leads to the personnel part of the combination.
