The main beach was split up into Vill01/02/06 & 010. There were many Vf gruppe bunkers, 5cm KwK guns, several 7.5cm FK & FH. A few gun garages (R604's), rows of trenches. Many heavy gun batteries covered the beach from Vill013 Mont Canisy and more behind Trouville.

Details

This is what may have been there. Vf's gruppe bunkers were littered along the beach. There were supposed to be two R604's but I could only find one. The two 5cm KwK's in Schnabelstand built into the beach changing huts (good camouflage). T - Tobruk the only one I could find but there were six more..
