Wn Trou013 Les Aubets

Details

A battery of four 7.62 Field Kannon that would have been used to cover the N/E side of Trouville but as they were mobile, they could be moved around at will. I could not find exactly where Trou13 was but Trou024 Trouville-Villa Helisabeth is the fire control post for the battery.

Trou13 was in the village of Les Aubets which has grown up in empty fields since the war. The battery would have been in field positions (not in concrete ringstands or casemates). They may have been horse drawn or lorries transport.
