Batterie Gironde

The remains of this battery lie in the forest north of La Coubre, east of La Pavillon. Designation Gi 50, codename "Muschel". The battery had 4 guns 240 mm of type C/02-06 (f) in bunkertype S 542, but it was never finished. Only the "gunrooms" are there. Nevertheless, this is an impressive site.

This forest suffered badly due to a huge storm in 1999. This picture was taken in 2000.
