Details

Here on the left an R607SK ammunition bunker. Two passageways down each side and two large rooms for ammunition. This area is still a French Army ammunition storage but it was a quarry and in WW1 it was used for all sorts of things from ammunition, hospital (Lazerette), HQ of units in the area, sleeping for soldiers going and coming from the front. So in WW2 it was an obvious choice for ammunition storage and then post war probably a NATO storage.
