    Modelbaubrasser, I see you are from the Netherlands. I was just discussing your area of the world because my students were asking about the meaning of "seawall."

    Dragos: Thank you for that find.:thumb::thumb:

    My paper modelling is on hold for a few days more. I'm still doing woodwork, and I found out the hard way that dropping a lump of wood on a half-finished model rather tends to finish it - quickly! :mrgreen:

    modelbouwbrasser: I thought the Nederlands expression was 'katzenelenbogen' - or is that just about women? :mrgreen:

    Seawall

    Major,

    The meaning of "seawall" in Dutch is Dunes and Dikes along the Northsea. But Logicman have here a very good point. In WWII we have along the coast a lot of concrete bunkers ( i dont know the word in English) built for the germans and they are for defence the coast for any raid from the sea.

    Gr, Arie.

    I believe concrete emplacements would be the word. However, I understood exactly what you meant with the word bunker. I imagine the guns were removed long ago.

    I have never visited the Netherlands; is the beer good?
