    Default PREST1 on tour

    I have been travelling around the northern part of Norway taking pictures of bunker's, memorial sites, war cemetarys and various ww2 related sites.

    Will post some pictures here of my tour's.



    Up first is "The King's bunker". HMK Håkon 7 and the Crown Prince Olav used this bunker as an air-raid shelter while they were living in the cottage "Trangen" from may 2nd to june 7th 1940 hiding from the germans

    It was restored in 1982

    Here's some pictures of some bunkers in a little norwegian fjord.
    There was 3 guns here. One 4,7cm festungspak and two 5 cm kwk's. The 4,7cm still remains but the 5cm's are blown up.

    I only have pictures of one of the kwk's because i could not find the second when i was there. Have been told afterwards where it is so maybe soon i'll have pic's of that too

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    This is a huge fort. I was walking here for 2,5 hour's , taking 180 pic's and i was'nt half way there.

    The underground bunkers are off limits without a guide so i stopped at the top of the stairs.

    I was alone så i did not take any chances
