The city

In and around Cherbourg many batteries were placed. We know that we have not visited all these sites. Fort du Roule is looking out over the harbour of Cherbourg. This harbour was defended by Stp 213. Inside the walls of the French military harbour quite some bunkers remain but they are inaccessible. In the vicinity the Germans built the railroad battery "Theodor Bruno" with 4 pieces of 240 mm. Along the coast we found a beautiful Vf for Mg, with the armoured plate still in it.

The battery at Bastion II inside the perimeters of the French barracks. 4 x M 170 (three visible on the photo), 1 x M 162a.

Fort de l'Ouest in the Rade de Cherbourg.
