Overview
More
This was the headquarters of the German Naval Commander of the Channel Islands during WWII. The Signals HQ handled all the important radio signals traffic for the German Forces during the Occupation. The bunker complex was completed in 1944 and housed powerful communication equipment and Enigma enciphering machines. Over half the complex has been restored to its wartime appearance with original fixtures, fittings, objects and equipment.

Firstly, this is not easy to find so keep your wits about you. The owner makes sure he speaks to all the visitors to add additional information about the bunker. I found this helpful but accept that others might find it obtrusive. It is a...More

Wondering which occupation museum to visit? This one. It cost very little but thanks to the guided tour (and you need the tour, otherwise you could be in and out) it was fascinating, although you probably do need to have a passing interest in this...More

Hidden on the outskirts of St Peter Port the German Signals HQ is not the easiest place to find. However if interested in local history during the occupation 1940-45 make the effort and find this well preserved piece of history. Follow the signs from Candie...More
