Information

1940 and the Luftwaffe may have found this area a good spot for its radars..

Details

This is an interesting picture, taken in 12-08-1940 Target VI/4 Cap De La Hague/Auderville (neg No.5997). This was August 1940 two months after the British were removed from France and the French Government surrendered to the very victorious German Army. The Germans set something here possibly a new type of radar unknown the the RAF and needed watching.

Now this is MY opinion and mine only.
This is a barracks building, maybe not for sleeping in but offices, canteen and kitchen. I have seen this type of building at StP235 Carneville Osteck Luftwaffe Station "Taussendfussler" has one like this.
