  The Galleries

The Caves were gradually replaced by the so-called galleries, presumably because the large hole for the floodlight was too great a risk for the cave.

                                     The Skel Gallery. Room for 4 recoil guns and 4 rifles.
                                     Under the trees behind to the left, the Skel Cave is situated.


The galleries, had like the caves flanking tasks, but could also have frontal functions and thereby supporting an exposed salient position.  (The Justitsraads Galleri I, II og III)
