Fort island Ijmuiden (Netherland) was created by Maarten
Me and my Brother visited an old Pre WW1 Dutch fort,
The Germans build more than 30 bunkers in,on and around the fort during the second WW2.

Awesome, thanks again for sharing.
I didn't realise that the outer casing on those tallboys was so thick, even without all that high explosive they would fcuk up your day if one landed near you!!!

Really good reference for bunker shapes and concrete colours and textures. And the Tallboys were the smaller of the earthquake bombs!! Amazing. Ruin your day alright. Imagine a grand slam!
