Sometimes you can still find nice details inside a rusty armoured turret. Although the two Sechsschartentürme of Pen-Bron (Bretagne, France) are not in the best shape, they are quite complete and show some of these details.

Written on the ceiling in pencil are firing directions for both machine guns. Each Scharte has a number, in this case also written with a pencil. Sperrfeuer is German for a barrage,where a large number of guns (at best a combination of MG/Pak/mortar) fire continuously. Its purpose of course, is to pin down an attacking enemy.
