Hohlgangsanlage 5 (Ho5)


"Hohlgangsanlage" are a number of tunnels complexes constructed by the German forces using slave and forced labour during the Occupation. The tunnels would have had multiple roles from munitions storage, troop & equipment shelter, hospitals and many other functions. Hohlgangsanlage 5 or Ho5 was a built inside a Jersey railway tunnel and was the only tunnel complex to be finished by the Germans. It was intended to be used as a fuel store but was instead used to store artillery ammunition. The anti-blast wall would have housed a machine gun for an entrance defence.
