Bunker 11 Border Defence Bocholt-Herentals Canal

Bunker 11 Border Defence Bocholt-Herentals Canal

Machine gun bunker, suitable for one Maxim machine gun and one machine gun Browning F.M.
Since this bunker is not built on a bank, the entrance is different and also equipped with three grenade launching holes for defense all around. This is the only bunker in this line with this layout, after all bunkers 6f and 8 are also suitable for a Maxim and F.M. but stand on the shore.
This bunker fell under the deployment of the Cie. Kaulille border cyclists. (bunkers 11 to 31)
