Middelkerke Stp Von Leeb
(=ex Stp Schöffer)

Updated May 29 2010

Occupied Feb 1 1943:  3/H.K.A.A. 823 - Nov 15 1943: 3/H.K.A.A. 1240

According to 'Atlantik Wall In Zeeland en Vlaanderen' this strongpoint was called Stp Schöffer but this seems to be a mistake.

This position was constructed with the following armement and bunkers:

6(not 4) x 15.5 K.418(f) with range of 19.5km
1 x 3.7cm Flak
1 x 2cm Flak
1 x 2cm Kw.K
6 x M.G.
1 x 60cm searchlight

Bunkertypes: 8 x 134, 134K, 196(probably), 7 x 501, 2 x 502, 3(not 2) x L402, L411, 1 x Leitstand

4 X 679 were planned but never build.

The R637 was located on another position.(Stp Tirpitz).
The R680 is probably a mistake.

There is at least still 1 Vf2a left.(see further)

(Thanks to Pierrot for providing me the corrected information)

Google Earth location map.  There's a slight offset with the 134k, location is a little more North.  Clicking the picture will give you a kml file.
It will be completed in the future.

Vf2a construction.

Not accessible, to many volts here.

A memorial sign, commemorating 11 citizens and a unknown number of german soldiers.

The Kriegsbahn is still in this area.

Walking around you will find much debris of Atlantic Wall constructions.  The other, much more recent Atlantic Wall is rising at the horizon.

Maybe a gun pit.

At the other side of the dunes there's a Tobruk, I don't know if it is assigned to Stp Von Leeb however.
