Details

I think this is a drag shoe brake for a wagon. It would have been carried hanging from the wagon on a chain and when the wagon started to go down a hill, it is placed under the rear wheel. Thus dragging along the ground and acting as a brake.

A look from above R219

Details

Now we get to the last item, an R219 double casemate. A 7.62cm F.K.17(t) field Kannon would sit inside and be able to fire east and west. The idea was that the embrasures could not be hit by direct fire. There are four flanking walls to protect the embrasures s well.

image

R219 casemate plan.

image

R219 casemate my original plan. The gun could fire out of one embrasure and if needed could be turned 180° and fire in the opposite direction. Later casemates did away with this idea and used two casemates covering each flank.
