Can someone be so kind as to send me instructions to build a Sentry box/ Sentry house?

you can find pictures on the net. The first thing you will see is that they are all different, that's because they were built by the company carpenter who made them up to his own design. They were made from old wood, sometimes floorboards, otherwise anything that would do. I have been to Batterie Todd in France and they have precast concrete versions. When I made one for our unit I measured the tallest person and worked down form there. 1969 Battle of Britain opening Luftwaffe inspection has a reasonable copy. So to answer you question there isn't a drawing for this box, I have contacted my friends in Deutschland who are war and peace revival and they confirm this info is correct. Design, in this case, must be considered on how to break down into manageable transportable parts.

The concrete version is very common in museums across France.
Most have at least one.

Were there any examples of Sentry houses on the Eastern front? Captured Soviet even?
