Welcome to this blog which is intended to accompany a website on how Suffolk was defended during the Second War. The blog will describe my trips out and about looking for the remains of the Second War defences while the Website will concentrate on putting these into context.

Non - Suffolk Sites

Probably stating the obvious, but my visits / explorations are not just confined to Suffolk. So on the odd occasion I will post on locations outside Suffolk (have already done so with the Somme Posts), both by trawling through photos taken in the past and on current visits - hopefully acceptable as this is only a blog - the website will remain dedicated to Suffolk! So today's offering are some pics of German bunkers taken in Poland. Cannot give any details on their history (except they do not seem to have seen action as there is no sign of any damage), but they can be found in the Biebrza River Valley. If you ever visit this area, go to the Information Centre and buy the excellent map of the area which marks all the bunkers and forts (2nd war and earlier). This area is also excellent for birding - River / Aquatic / Marsh Warbler, Black Storks, White-winged Black Tern, Corncrake, Penduline Tit, Bluethroat, Citrine Wagtail, Lessor-spotted Eagle etc, etc not to mention Elk!
The trenches in the last photo are First World war.
