Stp152 Gatteville Map 1310O
This batterie sits on the Pointe de Barfleur
near the village of La Houguette.
The four 155 mm guns were brought here and were of French origin and were
installed in type 679 casemates.
The guns here were equipped with shields that moved with the guns, giving more
protection than was normally the case with an open front to the casemate.
The site also had a Fire Control Post type H502 .
There were also several anti aircraft gun emplacements two of which can still be
found. There is also a personnel bunker which unfortunately is always flooded.
The third casemate has been turned into a summer home complete with patio doors
and double glazing. Rommel would not be amused
