Details

Alderney a small island off the coast of the Cherbourg Peninsular one of the Channel Islands and a Crown dependency. 3miles x 1.5miles.
In June 1940 its entire population was removed and sent to either the other Channel islands or to Britain (most ended up in Glasgow). Then the German occupation forces arrived on the 2nd July. Hitler thinking that the British would attempt at recapturing, ordered it to become a Festung and later combined into the Atlantikwall.

Alderney, W 202 FlakStP. Peil Boundary stone.

Details

War Department, we now call it the MOD Ministry of Defence.
WD = War Department. The broad arrow is the government sign or Pheon. Most Government military fortifications and here on Alderney there are many. Usually stone 1 is the key stone and then they run right around the site. The Army had WD, Royal Navy had RN, the RAF had AM. 

WD - War Department.
RN -- Royal Navy.
AM -- Air Ministry.

The Victorian well and pump.
I do not know what powered it but it must have filled the cistern next to it and either pumped to forts around the island or water carts came here, filled up and then delivered.
