A British WW1 bunker has been placed at Plugstreet wood near Browse Point Cemetary.
It has been cut in half to move it along the road and re-joined again.
I hope someone can tell me its previous location.

Maybe something for the winter holidays, although written in Dutch, I suppose there's also an English written version ?

Vf2a Sanität foundation at Stp Flügplatz

Although this was already identified by Pierrot as a Vf2a Sanität, the foundations are now visible.
Don't go here: as this place is full of quicksand and dangerous.(and it is probably already gone by the time of writing)

October 9 and October 16 2016

Changes at Stp Flügplatz !

Vf3a and Vf2a constructions found and disappeared again at Stp Flügplatz !
These were first identified by Pierrot and the A.W.B.

Click on this picture to go to the MKB Schelde page to see more.
Unfortunatly the 7.5cm gun emplacement has been turned over.
It is difficult to understand this kind of behaviour with WW2 history.

Some discoveries were made.  For example the 'Kompensierscheibe' used to allign the magentic compass of the planes.

The A.W.B. found this KSS only recently somewhere alongside the Belgian coast.
It is the same type of the KSS at the Military Barracks at Lombardsijde.
Only one picture inside the bunker.  Don't ask !  No location will be given.

Below same 'Type 5' KB at Lombardsijde.

Along the 'Brugse Steenweg', the road from Brugge to Blankenberge there are two remarkable WW1 bunkers.
Last week, one was cleaned up and re-painted.  This is very well done.  On the other side there's another bunker belonging to the
former WW1 airfield, but this one has been covered by sand and dirt during road construction works.  It would be nice
if this one could be preserved and restored as well.(and not only during the 1914-1918 commemorations...)

I only hope that the fresh paintwork won't attract 'graffity vandals'...

Nevertheless, great job and congratulations !

Looking at the fence you can see some concrete pillars which were in fact 'tetreaëders' beach defence obstacles of WW2 !
You can find them everywhere around this place.

Discovery of a R656 bunker near the Albert 1 monument of Nieuwpoort.
The A.W.B. identified it as beëing a R656 of W.N. Tilly 2.
This is only the first R656 of Tilly 2, the other one also still exists.

Another mysterious bunker at Bruges, Belgium:


December 7 2013

The famous 'Sinterklaasstorm' from 5-6 december 2013 revealed some interesting things.  Here a chimney of a Vf bunker somewhere along the Belgian coast.
It came free just some hours ago when large amounts of dune sand were blown away.  Don't ask me to give its position, I will not give it away.  We still have some research to do.

January 4 2016: not sure this is a Vf bunker...

August 24 2013

A collegue told me that a bunker at Blankenberge, Belgium has been demolished.  Since almost all WW2 bunkers are demolished in Blankenberge,
this could only be the Luftshutz bunker from Stp 717E at the railway station.  As the railway station will also be demolished in september 2013,
this would have been a sign that the last days of the LS were counted.  Here's a picture from the bunker then&now but not as we would have wanted to be...

August 4 2013

A while ago I decided not to give this one away.  However it seems that others also found this Tobruk in De Panne
and discuss it on several internet fora.  So I add two pictures I took on January 28, 2008 and August 24, 2011.

I will not give it's location away, so you have to find it yourself.
(nothing's more fun if you try to look for something...)

Maybe type 58c but maybe something else ?

The destruction of Stp Pommern is now completed. Everything's gone for ever. What a stupid decision !

June 7 2012

The Atlantikwall Belgium(AWB) discovered a new fresco in a bunker somewhere along the Belgian coast.
The discovery was made during the month of May 2012.

It says: 'Hier wird nicht...  Verkauf nür gegen Barzahlung'
(verkoop enkel tegen kontante betaling)

We will not reveal its position(no need to ask!) because this finding is rare and exceptional
and we do not want it to be destroyed.
However; those bunker specialist will find it some day anyway.
