Fort Eben Emael - inside 2

These photos are of the inside of one of the fighting areas. These were taken in Visé 2, a fixed artillery position that was not attacked as it did not pose a threat to the invading German forces.

In the corridor at the base of the position

Repaired caissons for the 75mm cannons
