M19 Automatic Mortar (Type Modified 633)
This bunker - one of only four constructed on Guernsey, was excavated in 2009 by Festung Guernsey for public viewings. This bunker type was constructed with a large armored cupola (about 4 inches thick) for a advanced 5cm automatic mortar this large cupola was blown out for scrap after the war. destroying most of the turret room and leaving several large cracks through-out the structure.
10.5cm PaK K331 (f) Casemates (Type Jäger)
This type of casemate reasonably common in the Channel Islands, had four exampes built on the Fort Hommet headland. One of which has been extensively restored by Richard Heaume and the Occupation Museum to how it would have appeared and have been operated in. Its now open to the public. Inside, other German artifacts from the headland are on display as well as the original type of gun in situ.

The two shelters on the headland are both positioned on the Napolionic Martello Tower at the head of the Headland. Both ran a 60cm gauge railway out to an operating location for the 60cm Scheinwerfer/ searchlight. The shelter in the top of the image is now open on certain dates as the Le Galloudec Shell Shrine.
