In May 2016 JWT received a longterm licence to research and document Hohlgangsanlage 19 (cave installation 19). Ho19 was a German tunnel complex built during the Second World War. If you are new to our Ho19 Blog you may want to start at the bottom of the page and work your way up.
Two new arrows, well I say new but these are very old and we have only just spotted them. The red arrow below was spotted by Lance who was visiting with the Force 135 chaps and the Black one we noticed when bucketing water tonight. Both have been location tagged and will have high res photos taken of them.
Tonight we had some special guests visiting us to see our work and how we are progressing. The Force 135 reenactors are a group of both UK and Jersey reenactors who have been staying at Greve De Lecq barracks in Jersey as part of the liberation anniversary.
Big thanks to Lorraine who has donated us some WWII barbwire posts. These are great for displays, marking areas and we are saving them from being scrapped. If you have any please get in touch as we will always have a home for them.
Every now and then you will have seen in the tunnel photos a trailer that has been abandoned in the tunnel. It is a strange frame that may have once housed a generator or something similar. It has one Canadian tyre and one British WD (War Department) marked tyre. Our question to you guys is, does any one recognise it or could give us a clue to what it once was ? Could it be French, Canadian, American or British ? email@example.com if you have any ideas.
So its mid April and we approach the first full year of decimation in the tunnel. We are in a better state than 12 months ago but still have some way to go to clear the wet stuff. Sorry that the blogs become a documentary of water management, but its important to show how much time and work we put in to this.
