History

The construction of the camp started in 1930 and was completed in 1933. The barracks was expanded in 1935 - 36. Today, the camp has 18 buildings, including a water tower.

In time of peace, it housed the fortress troops of the surrounding bunkers, like the large artillery fortresses of Rochonvillers and Molvange.

During the occupation, the camp was be used by the Germans. Later the camp was used by the training companies of the regiments, stationed at Thionville.

At the Saint Gabriel day (patron of transmissions) in 1961 or 1962, General Massu (commanding the 6th Military Region and friend of the camp commander, Captain Laurent) visited the camp of Angevillers.

At times still used as a training ground, the camp was finally abandoned in 2008.

 

Visited two times.

My first visit was at the beginning of May, with @The-Raw, @Maniac, @extreme_ironing and Elliot5200. But due to too little time I could not enter all buildings.

For this reason I returned three weeks later with a none member, to explore the rest of the area, too.

      The place, called "little Lutece", the ancient name of Paris, was a holiday park with an Asian restaurant, a villa and other buildings.
      Unfortunately, I don't know when it was built, opened or closed.

      This was our first Metz German Fortification of the day and it did not disappoint. GF L'Yser is filled with murals and paintings, which are incredible and fortunately survive after nearly 100 years. Visited with @flat and a few other non-members

      History:

      The Feste Prinz Regent Luitpold, renamed Group Fortification Yser after 1919, is a military installation near Metz that was constructed between 1907 and 1914. It is part of the second fortified belt of forts of Metz and formed part of a wider program of fortifications called "Moselstellung", encompassing fortresses scattered between Thionville and Metz in the valley Moselle. The aim of Germany was to protect against a French attack to take back Alsace-Lorraine and Moselle from the German Empire. The fortification system was designed to accommodate the growing advances in artillery since the end of XIXth century. Based on new defensive concepts, such as dispersal and concealment, the fortified group was to be, in case of attack, an impassable barrier for French forces. 

      During The Annexation of Alsace-Lorraine, the fort receives a garrison of gunners belonging to the XVIth Army Corps. From 1914-1918, it served as a relay for the German soldiers at the front post. Its equipment and weapons are then at the forefront of military technology. In 1919, the fort was occupied by the French army. After the departure of French troops in June 1940, the German army reinvests the fort. In early September 1944, at the beginning of the Battle of Metz, the German command integrates the fort into the defensive system set up around Metz.

      Must go back
