G-83 is a inventory number from the Belgian Army.

The second highes dune of the Belgian Coast(Hoge Blekker at Koksijde is the highest).  This is the position of Stp Prinz Eugen.

I counted 5 steps 1/2, thus slightly more than five metres wide.  Identified by Pierrot beeing a Vf2a.
Much debris can be found suggesting that this was a strongpoint.
The bunker looks brand new.  It is still black and brickwork is like beeing made yesterday.
More research has to be made but this will be very difficult because of the reservate.  Don't start digging without authorisation !
