    It appears to be a fairly standard 50-person blast shelter.

    All the best,

    They are quite narrow in order to make them effective against blast but, I have no doubt that in times of need more than 50 desperate runners would pile in!

    Its secondary function was a trench for airmen armed with rifles and grenades.
