Experts and archaeologists also hastened to the scene, and, working together with Cassoe, emptied the structures within a few days of boots, undergarments, <span class="ev_code_RED">socks</span> , military stripes, mustard and aquavit bottles, books, inkpots, stamps featuring Hitler, medicines, soda bottles, keys, hammers and other objects.

Is it possible that Celeon has socks missing, amongst other things?

Sad part is groups wanting to blow them up.
It's my opinion that sites such as this should be
kept as a reminder of the past.
History forgotten is Doomed to be repeated.
When we can see the past?
We tend to remember it.
Humans are a visual species.
What we see stays with us.
What we are told?
It tends to fade away.
Very quickly!

And I'd love to have one of those
in my front yard!!

Very interesting! Thanks for posting. I had no idea there were THOUSANDS of such bunkers around Denmark's coast.

I concur, much like the Normandy defenses they should be left in place, the items returned to position and a museum opened.

It would be very sad to see them be distroyed,it is a part of history and should be preserved,not to mention it probably would be a great tourist attraction,revenue would be pouring in...

Basically, what they're speaking about is that the inventory has remained and suffered the effect of time and nature, sand and water entering the bunker.

Next paragraph...

"It was a race against the clock because of the risk of looters. We lied to keep them at bay, saying that there was only one furnished bunker and that it was guarded around the clock, which wasn't true. But even so there were two attempted break-ins," Anthonisen says."

And a bit later in the article:

"All of the objects from the shelters have been taken to the conservation centre at Oelgod museum, some 30 kilometres (20 miles) from the beach, to be examined."

Admirable, though I hope they took note of where everything was in thier rush to protect the items.
