Information

StP186 Wiesbaden, ex StP214 Holderstrauch Breslau

Details

StP186 Weisbaden is a Luftwaffe station in a group of several other airforce radio/radar units around the area. The height of the hill helps and the view over the channel. There is a Fire Control Post (Peilstand) probably used by one of the local artillery batteries to cover the inland area if invaded by the dreaded British.
