Details

Bunkers and trench systems showing up on this air photo. Yellow squares look like the sites of the 10men bunkers. There were at least four bunkers so forty men held this flank of the defence. With a very long trench system, 2cm Flak and a steal framed/wooden watch tower or fire control tower to watch over the area. The tower could also have been the first fire control tower to be used to control the guns.
