Wn19 Quineville Fort Lestre Hameau Simon

Protection for small harbour at old fort

Wn19 site overview

What to see

This small Widerstandsnest stands on the opposite bank of the Sinope river to Quineville and provided defence from the beach and to the mouth of the river and small harbour.
Again, this was based around the location of an old French fort - Fort Lestre - and featured a mix of defensive positions for 5cm KwK guns in open ringstands, Tobruks for a tank turret and machine guns, and Vf2 personnel shelters for the gun crews.
