Festung Guernsey and Channel Islands Occupation Society

From Festung Guernsey site.

I have been coming across the name Festung Guernsey quite a bit in my entries about the German occupation of the island during the war. According to their site, they are "Dedicated to Preserving Guernsey's German Fortifications."

Some of the sites include: Batterie Dollmann, MP3, Naval Signal HQ, 10.5 cm Jager Casemate, Telephone Bunker, Vale Castle, Batterie Mirus, MP4, Grantez, 4.7 cm Pak Casemate L'Eree, Batterie Scharnhorst, 2 cm Flak and Cobofels.

They offer tours, but not for individuals, but do have information packs for self-guided tours.

According to Wikipedia, there is also a Channel islands Occupation Society with two branches, one based on Jersey and the other on Guernsey.

It's Great That They Are Maintain Their Heritage. --GreGen
