This position seems to be a coast defence including a Flak element. Four 2cm Flak 30 AA guns. Several ammunition and machine gun bunkers. There is much more to find in the camping site than the few we saw.

South of St. Cécile this may be the Flak site for the area. There was a radar site in St. Cécile with Fu.MG StP Luftwaffe station "Bulldogge" and a large batterie of 15.5cm guns .

Continuing along the coast and you come upon Eisenpfahel barbed wire fence posts. They may even be still in the place they were set in the 1940's.
