Marineflakbatterie 'Nansum'

Was the battery, next to a fire control post and gun emplacements, accompanied by some bombproof bunkers, of which only a M383 Einheitsmaschinenraum and FL246 ammunition bunker are still intact at this time.
The occupation of the battery took place by the Marineflakabteilung 256, which many anti-aircraft batteries occupied in the area.
Also, the complex was in a so-called Hochstand present on which a radar device of the type FuMO 201 was prepared.
