StŁtzpunkt Lilie - 117a - Bat.- oder Reg. Gefechtsstand

From May 1943, the headquarters of the Second Battalion of the 36th Regiment of the 118th Lufstwaffe Field Division was located in this command bunker.
Before that, Battalion II / B (Plehn) of 182nd Reserve Division was located here here in July 1942. In 1943 they had a 37mm anti-tank gun, two mortars and two machine guns. The garrison consisted of 4 officers, 13 NCOs and 42 men.

Inside the bunker the doors still are present, something not so common anymore.
