Hochleitstand (fire control post).
Fire control post for battery 8./M.A.A.204 (Marine Artillerie Abteilung) with good views over the coast and the sea controlled the fire of four 15cm S.K.C/28.
4 x M270 casemates with a 120degree ark of fire.120degree.
15cm S.K.C/28 pivot mounted guns.
Pieces of an M270 casemate.
I believe rather than give the bunkers up to the Allies they blew them up.
Remains of an M270.
134 Ammunition bunker I.
Note that the bunker has straight sides and is not rounded off. A West Wall bunker design and later bunkers would have been rounded off.
134 ammunition bunker plan of how I see it?
The blue line is the extent of the West Wall and purple the Maginot line.
882P7 marine armoured door.
Parts of the original door are still in place.
This may be an 882P7 marine armoured door.
A collapsed accommodation building.
A light reinforced concrete structure, not a bunker.
How it may have looked.
The inside of the same style of building inside.
Set behind the gun line which is situated on a sand dune, this fire control post built to look like a church tower had to be able to look over and in front of the guns and out to sea at its targets.
Just before its inevitable capture the foundations at the front were under mined to allow it to collapse, but as you see it now leans like Pisa.
Designed to look like a local church tower to add to its camouflage effect, but as you can see it did not stop the Canadians from firing at it by the looks of the many hits received.
A nice view of the top vision slits.
Fire control post and the three gun positions, number four is to the right off the picture.
Horses on the beach.
The rear of the casemate.This states an R219??? so what is this an M219 is a large double height bunker with a turret on the top. This is not that. So what is it.
The front of the casemate.
This could be a plan of a 219 casemate Vf LAG stand for a 7.5cm PaK gun and the gun could be used either through the left or the right embrasure.
The battery site was destroyed to stop it falling into the hands of the Canadians as they advanced.
All the M270 casemates completely destroyed.
M270 at Battery Brommy, Cherbourg
Another with just the cap showing.
The other M270 at Brommy, Cherbourg.
M270 plan, gun room, two ammunition rooms and close combat defences to both rear entrances.
Looks like a bomb crater, most batteries were bombed or shelled relentlessly after D-day to save infantry casualties when they were attacked.
