hello kurt,
I think that it is a wooden and glass observation post but not on a structure but on the roof of a bunker.

Hello

Certainly no bunker, just earthwork for protection around the hut and the obs. post :-)

It schould have been on the east coast of Jutland, but no indication about the excact location - yet.

Some nice pictures of a fluwa with a rotating cupola. It appears a cupola in half was used more often. Still the question why they used half a cupola. Maybe better field of vision while still have some cover against the wind or rain?
