New Update March 17 2010, discovery of one of the railway gun basements !
At Uitkerke close to the crossing of the Lissewegestraat and Bosstraat there are some MKF remnants to see in the surrounding area.
Close to Donkerklokhoeve
4 X 28 cm Railway guns.
were under command of
Kap.Lt.d.R. Barde and Kap.Lt. Rotzbach
NGI chart with positions. The fourth one has become visible !
Google Earth gave some nice indication that something would be visible.
Everything seems to be cleaned up and the
gun postion becomes visible.
It is build as a regular octagram. Each side is approximately 7m and the concrete has a diameter of about 3m50.(guess)
Right picture: some attachement holes in the concrete.
This is the position of 4 large WWI guns
which were once installed here. Here is Gun number 1 position.
The basement is probably still there as you can see.
This seems to be a guardhouse: At this location there was a dummy airfield or an arfield which was never used.
Inside and backside of the brick bunker construction. It has been adapted as a stable.
Not clear to me what this means: a WWII Vf construction or ... It has two entrances, one beeing a false one.
