The images you are viewing were taken at the Swiss Army Museum in Thun, Switzerland. This incredible collection is part of the thousands of historical items housed in the museum.  After the war, there were approximately 21,000 forts.  Some of the images below are from FORT LITROZ.  There are many more photos to be seen at


Thank you Mr. Moret for being so kind as to share these images of incredible and historical lanterns.
