I would name it Kazematten (same thing, Dutch spelling, incidentally closer to the Byzantine origin)

Politie Kapitein = Police Captain (what do they have to do with it ?)

An alternative could be :

Kapitein der Genie (Engineers Captain)



(actually, a lieutenant of the 'opbouwdienst' the Dutch fortification labour service during German occupation .. but it's a fun picture)

Mobilized police officers commanded many of the Dutch border troops.  I think that's from "War Over Holland" wesbsite.

I wasn't aware of politie-kapiteins taking command of border troops.
Why the hell not though Smile


From both German and Dutch wiki :
The word 'kazemat' comes from the Italian casa matta and/or the Spanish casa armata. Both are derived from the old Byzantine term chasmata . This term was used as a way to point out fortifications with shooting holes in it.

Sounded somewhat credible.

Oh ok Smile. "Chasma" means "Gap" in Greek. "Chasmata" is the plural.
