    I was just there 2 weeks ago on a private tour. Did you know that the bunker which overlooked the cliff, was an observation bunker. It originally had think clear plastic so you could see outside. I got a great tour guide and learned so much.

    Yes I did ,did you go inside the one that was use for a hospital?
    I have never heard of the clear plastic.
    I hope you enjoy your visit

    No, I didnt have time to visit the hospital. Yes, in the bunker over looking the cliff, there are makrs for where nalis/ screws would be. My guide told me that originally, large clear bake-lite was screwed in place and it served as an observation area overlooking where the allies ships were.

    Hi Chris,

    never heard of this sealed bunker, can you give me some more info? Why was it sealed full of weapons on D-Day?

    During the bombing of the pointe du hoc a shell hit just in front of that banker and covered it up. It is not a large bunker it is very small.
