Geocache Description:


Denne serie er lavet for at vise den glemte pansergrav, med observationsbunkere og
gennemgange/overkørsler af graven,  med Dragetænder....


FFC eftersendes og til nogle af cacherne, skal der medbringes pen.
 

Pansergraven :


I midten af 1944 blev der imellem Ho Bugt og Ringkøbing Fjord, anlagt 38 km pansergrave.
Pansergravene skulle stoppe allierede kampvogne, hvis de gjorde landgang på kysten.
Pansergraven var bred (4,5 meter) og dyb (3 meter), med en vinkel på 55 grader.
Hvis en kampvogn kørte ned i graven ville den have svært ved at komme op og var dermed et let mål.
Det tog 100 mand (civile og krigsfanger) én dag at grave en strækning på ca. 1 km.
 

 

Bunkerne :


Langs med pansergraven blev der bygget små Observationsbunkere, til de tyske soldater i området.



Dragetænder :


Dragetænder var betonstubbe i vejsiden, hvor vigtige adgangsveje krydsede Pansergraven.
De fleste i Danmark, er i dag ødelagt/fjernet, men her i plantagen findes der stadig et sæt.



English version:


This series is made to show the forgotten Anti Tank Ditch, with observation bunkers and  passes by

the Ditch, with Dragon Teeth ....

Anti Tank Ditch :


In the middle of 1944, there  was between Ho Bay and Ringkøbing Fjord, built 38 km anti-tank ditches.
The Anti-Tank Ditches should stop Allied tanks, if they did landing on the coast.
The Anti-Tank Ditches was wide (4.5 meters) and deep (3 meters), with an angle of 55 degrees.
If a tank drove into the pit, it would have difficulty getting up and was thus an easy target.
It took 100 men (civilians and prisoners of war) one day to dig a distance of approx. 1 km.

Bunkers :
Along with the Anti-Tank Ditches, there was built small observation bunkers, for the German soldiers in the area.

 

Dragon Teeth :
Dragon Teeth were concrete stumps in roadside where important routes crossed the Anti-Tank Ditches.
Most Dragon Teeth in Denmark are now destroyed / removed, but here in the plantation, there are still a set.
