Obergefrieter Kurt Friedrich Schmidt - Coastal Artillery

Kurt started his military training with a 3 month stint in the RAD / Reich Arbeits Dienst. He then joined the Kriegsmarine serving with the Coastal Artillery in France.

The coastal batteries of the Kriegsmarine were stationed on the German coasts. With the conquering and occupation of other countries coastal artillery was stationed along the coasts of these countries, especially in France and Norway as part of the Atlantic Wall.

Naval bases were protected by Flak-batteries of the Kriegsmarine against enemy air raids. The Kriegsmarine also manned the Seetakt sea radars on the coasts.
