A tour of one of the four vast German underground bunkers that made up the largest gun battery in the Channel Islands, which was operated by the German Navy. This particular one is the best preserved and shows how much effort went into Hitler’s directive of October 1941: making Guernsey into an impregnable fortress. This tour is bought to life with contemporary photographs. Torches helpful.
