WV5454 : Molkte Battery

Molkte Battery
Molkte Battery
This is a restored section of the army battery "Moltke" which once sprawled across the headland. On permanent exterior display is one of the original 15.5cm K418(f) French field guns from the battery, initially pushed over the nearby cliffs by the British Army in 1946, and retrieved in the 1990s. In an adjacent emplacement are further examples of coastal artillery pieces used in the island, and subsequently rescued from the same watery grave. LinkExternal link
