The second watch office
Right, I've been for a perambulation around this one now. lots to see and do!
If i've got descriptions wrong please let me know. I am on a near vertical learning curve with this stuff.
Huge thanks to Atlantikwall Richard for guiding me round in a logical and easy to follow fashion!
my pics can be freely downloaded and used *providing* they are not used for profit and that I am credited along side them.
Aye thank you!
Great set of pics.
I trust you din't try the mushroom as there is a bit missing!
I recently found mention of a bombing range at Culmhead (not the airfield) and I have it located at Tricky Warren (Isn't that a character from Eastenders?). Seems a bit close but I assume it was a practice range.
re the bombing range. the plans that I have seen indicate a bombing range dropping off the south west edge of the airfield into a bit of a valley.
the plan that richard and i worked from on sunday had BR marked on the southwest corner, pretty much where you were I've arked up a GE image with the places we visited. They are not labelled correctly with the function. but they are indicative of what we got up to.
new, more updated GE Image
with the BR in the southwest corner where the perimeter track cuts in.

went in this:
and then in turn in this:
and it's quite a rare item.
aparently further info can be found:The Air Publication for this mounting is in The National Archives under reference AIR 10/3219 if you would like a look.
Would this be the 'Motley Mounting' that has featured in another thread?
The guns look to be twin Vickers 'K' guns.
