les Cognets, le Bodinais

Several books speak different about the exact composition of this AA battery. (Ra 237) It must have been a combination of bunkertypes L 401, L 401A, L 402, L 409 and one or more open emplacements. Due to the fact that the battery is in a new villaparc, combined with the thick bushes, it is not easy to find the right composition. One thing is clear, the primary control centre for this battery was a L 403, which was accessible during our visit in 2001. In 2003 a house was built on it. We think we have found 3 times type L 401A and one L 401. A fifth gun emplacement is on private property. In total 5 AA guns with a caliber of 10,5 cm were placed.

Anti splinter cylinder.
