This is a relatively common photo of Marine Artillerie on the French Coast - Der Atlantikwall. Anyone else have some photos of TR coastal defenses?

Hi Rick,

here is a period press photo i have that shows a "Kustenbatterie".

I am not sure where the photo was taken but it could be the Atlantic/Channel coast ?

Regards,Martin

Here is an artwork print that comes from a period portfolio i have by the marine artist,Adolf Bock.The portfolio includes about 18 pieces of his marine artwork.The portfolio is titled "Kampf unter der Kriegsflagge".

This print is titled "Schwere Marine-Artillerie bescheist Dover".

Adolf Bock was the designer of the Kriegsmarine High Seas Fleet badge.With the exception of a few unmarked examples,his name can be seen on the reverse of every Schwerin HSF badge.

Regards,Martin.

I think it reads "beschiesst" instead of "bescheisst", but the mistake is very funny.....
