Batterie Moltke Open Day

Batterie Moltke opened for its first 2016 open day yesterday - and what a great day it was with a total of 73 visitors exploring the extensive underground bunker complex at Les Landes. The interior gun pit circle has had a fresh coat of paint, while new photographs, information panels, and showcases were unveiled to the public.

Very complimentary remarks were received about the new Red Cross display. Some visitors even brought in a few new items to include in the displays. The team were very pleased to welcome a great mix of old and young friends, intermingled with CIOS members returning to see the new displays.

The 2cm Oerlikon Flak display room had some admirers . Pictured here are crew members Gary Quenault & Shane Boschat passing on their knowledge. The Batterie Moltke team would like to thank you all for visiting , and we hope to see you again soon.

The next open day is Saturday 23rd April. A warm welcome awaits, with plenty of expert knowledge on hand ready for all your questions.
