 The Other Batteries around Sicherungstellung Nord.

 The Ullerupvej Battery

 An anti aircraft battery composed of 2 FLAK guns (FLAK= FLug Abwehr Kanone) under command of the Zeppelin base in Tönder.
 A room of timber were placed in a barrow, there were two tunnels into it, one from the east and one
 from the west.
 On the walls of both the room and the tunnels were mounted shelves, where the 1800 shells were placed.
 The Battery had a single opportunity for combat.
 The crew were notified before the English air raid against the base at Tönder. (The first attack in military history launched from an
 air craft carrier) in
1918.
 The crew were Catholics and had just been celebrating some religious occasions and didn’t answer the telephone.
