Cairneyhill HAA.kmzIf you live in Crossford... take a walk to Cairneyhill some time, theres one of the best preserved ww2 HAA sites I've seen just south of there at 56° 3'23.61"N 3°31'11.06"W
It probably defended the Crombie Munitions Depot which has been open since WW1 and, in WW2, was used by the Royal Navy.
I think from something I vaguely remember reading it was down as HMNB Rosyth No3 HAA site, but as you say, is probably nearer to Crombie
Quite likely but I sure they would have shot at anything identified as 'enemy' regardless of the presumed target
Thanks, I discovered it by accident whilst looking at some old maps - where it is listed as 'camp'
Cairneyhill was listed as RNG 3. AFAIK it was the first gunsite to open fire on the JU-88s which attacked shipping in the Forth on 16/10/39. Crombie had its own complement of Bofors guns in addition.
