Full Description

A half-pillbox is situated on the fence-line about 45m NE from the stand-by set house. Only the 'front half' is extant, the rear portion is open. Examination of a RAF vertical air photograph (106G/UK751, 6039, flown 31 August 1945) would suggest that the pillbox was built in this fashion.
Visited by RCAHMS (DE, SW), August 2000

Identified as a pillbox, it is positioned on the N boundary of the military camp. It may be that this may be a First World War blockhouse (pillbox) with its unusual construction and thin walls.
