CIOS Members Neil Walker, Cristin Bouchet, Damian Bouchet and Neil Beck have been exploring around Festung St. Nazaire. As well as the obligatory trip to the U-Boat Base and seeing one the heaviest Sechsschartentürme Cupolas produced (Type 40P8). They found much more behind the scenes in terms of some of the heavier flak batteries giving St. Nazaire the nickname “Flak City”.
Grateful thanks to Marc & Luc Brauer of Le Grand Blockhaus Museum in Batz-sur-Mer are wished by all the team on this trip for their generous time and fascinating insights given.
