Great comment from Tim - thanks! :
"There was an air force anti-aircraft heavy battery "4./GemFlakAbt 364"
at Mont Gavey (see name of lane just to north) comprising 6 x 8.8 Flak
36/37 Guns in reinforced field positions (pits dug in the ground 3'-5'
deep, with timber posts, wriggly tin and sandbags forming the 'walls';
the ground from the hole would have been piled around the outside of the
hole to provide more cover) and 3 x 2cm Flak 38 (on your question

have provided simple refuge in case of nearby bombing or shelling, but
wouldn't have survived a decent direct hit. Regards, Tim"
