4 more plans of around wartime.

This one shows the site of the 3 flak towers used to defend the dockyard



These three show the sites of the shelters, yard and section headquarters and associated wartime areas like the water pumps, decontamination stations etc...

In the photo of HMS Ocelot it looks like you are actualy in the dry dock  ???


I am ;)  There is a stairway and walkway into the dock, under the sub and back out again.  Have a look next time your there.

Was a peaceful day and a good one. :)
