WW1 Battery Sachsen

Updated March 28, 2012

The battery Sachsen was installed during janaury 1918.  It was a so called 'Ausweichstellung' meaning that it was used as a fast and mobile gun position.
It stood under command of the A.O.K IV.Armee.  Commander was L.t.d.R Stüwe.  It fired almost 40 times.

The battery used 4 x 17cm S.K.L/40 guns with a firing range of 24km.
Only one platform remains, the others have been cleaned up by farmers soon after WW1.

Just behind the St.Job chappel you can find the gun emplacement.
