This is a strange one that i didn't know of.
However this type of bunker can also be found in France, La Manche district, at St.-Vaast-la-Hogue where about 4 bunkers of this type are build into the sea wall.
I can see that this bunker makes part of a bigger bunker complex from witch we can only see a full wall, probably the back of it.
