The bunker was angled to the right.... giving enfilade fire along the beach. The shoulder you talk about protected the embrasure from the left. Like turning your left shoulder out to protect your face in a fist fight. :)

Spain: Flags with giant swastikas decorated the front of the parliament building in Barcelona, Oct 1942, during the Exhibition of Modern German Architecture and which shows the sympathy of the Francoist Barcelona of the post-civil war to Nazism during the WW2. (text from La Vanguardia, Spain)
