Contest #446 Heavy Combat Bunker Vulture of Jastarnia, Hel Peninsula, Poland.

The Poles built this in 1939 in anticipation of WWII. They never got to use it, but the invading Germans did as an air raid shelter and observation post. Post-war the Poles continued to think of it as a possible defensive point, but by 1970 abandoned the notion, and turned it over to civilian control.

Here it is in 2012.

This contest proved considerably easier than we thought it might be. Well done, all hands.
