What I believe to be "Hitlers Bunker" between Fromelles and Aubers, 50* 36'35.61N, 2*50' 21.12E. He went out of his way to visit it whilst returning to the area in WW2
......its a start, but I can't see an end to it, there''s a lot of them in that area!!
Towisuk, you are correct in your belief that the bunker that you have presented is what is known as "Hitler's Bunker". The local military historian from Fromelles told me, about a month ago, that the village of Fromelles had arranged for the Bunker to come into the care/protection of the village administration.
hudsonwhistle, the bunker you have indicated is a storage bunker, not a fighting/defensive one. BTW, the German writing above the doorway is the name of the builder. I have looked at this bunker many, many times and recently arranged for the small tree growing in the doorway, and blocking the view of the blastwall inside and the builders name, to be removed.
