Normandy Bunker

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Is_That_A_Wah, Feb 9, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know the location of the German bunker in Normandy that was recently discovered by a Brit? I heard it is opening to the public around March/April and fancy having a look.

    Cheers.
     
  2. If you mean the Maisy Grandcamp battery, its at GPS 6402 54707 and GPS 6407 534710 and can be easily found using the French IGN 1:25,000 Maps, Sheet 1412OT.

    I was given the following directions. Maisy is 1km SW of the harbour at Grancamp-Maisy. If you follow the D 514 South from Maisy, and turn Right (West) 300 metres after leaving the village on to a minor, unclassified road that runs SW along a spur. There are two sets of casemates very close to this road, the first group on the left and the second 700 metres further on, on the right. This minor road is the only way to approach the position.


    To say that they have been "discovered" is a little innacurate. I think they have always been there on the map. The important step is that someone has bothered to obtain access, tidy them up and open them to the public and good news for anyone who is interested.
     
  3. Excellent - thanks very much indeed for your assistance. I will be taking the kids over for a visit in April.
