VF fur Sechsschartenturm

This is one of nine Sechsschartenturm (six shooting turret) which was constructed in Jersey during the occupation. All except two of them were destroyed during the scrap metal drive in 1953. This one survived due to it being located on private land.

The turret housed a MG34 heavy machine gun which could be moved around to fire from any of the six positions.
