Atlantic wall, Aber Wrac’h - France (1)

  • Atlantic wall, Aber Wrac’h - France (1)

Atlantic wall (Mur de l'Atlantique) along French coastlines. Aber Wrac'h, Pays du Léon, Bretagne, France. The entrance of the Aber Wrac'h was protected by several fortifications. At least two bunkers were located on Fort de Cézon, and there were several small bockhaus on the left entrance banks. One unusual bunker covered both entrances of Aber Wrac'h and Aber Benoit. German blockhaus covering both entrances of Aber Benoit and Aber Wrac'h on 22/04/2004 at mid ebb tide; note the roof shape to keep some grass or sans as camouflage; it was unusual that there were two wide openings on left and right covering respectively the Aber Benoit and Aber Wrac'h entrances; the visible opening covered the Aber Benoit.
