The Atlantik Wall In Normandy

 

 

Stp42 Arromanches Map 1512 OT

Arromanches was chosen as a Luftwaffe Radar station very early on into the war. As was usual several types of radar were installed on the same site to give a complete picture of what was happening. The radar installed here included a Seetakt Gema FuMo 2 and a Wurzburg See Riese FuMo 214.

The site is now used as a car park for those wanting to see the Mulberry Harbour which was installed below the radar installation.
