These two Dutch casemates were build in 1935 to protect the bridge across the Maas. The bridge was blown up in May 1940 after a short skirmish. It was rebuild during the war. During Operating Market Garden (1944), Flak on one of the two casemates was taken out by an bazooka round. This action helped Lieutenant John S. Thompson and his Platoon to take the bridge.
The two casemates are currently part of the Graafs KazemattenMuseum.
