Does anyone know of anyone who has been in the magazines here and has photographs?

Slough Fort want to restore the lifting gear in the magazines and they know they are the same as the ones here, but no one has any photos.  Can anyone help?

A less cropped version compared to David's earlier addition.

The cable layout in Sep 1941, the plan shows that the battery and Warden chain Home Low station were linked together.

Just flicking through some aerials and found one of No3 gun under construction. Heavily camouflaged.
