As the war went on, the Germans changed the guns mounted in the battery. Mr Monkey found a 37mm Flak 36 in an emplacement built for one of the 120mm Belgian field guns, because the battery was on the route for bombers attacking Germany. Then he found a gun position made of brick but originally disguised to look like concrete. It was built in a bit of a panic after D-Day, holding a 37mm PAK 36 (with a special anti-tank grenade) to defend the rear of the battery.
