A couple more bits from South Foreland. Sorry pictures aren't that great, it was getting late in the day and couldn't be bothered with the tripod.

I have asked on another forum but didn't really have a satisfactory answer. Why are there two large shelters at South Foreland, one well away from the guns, and why two plotting rooms?

A couple of pics while the battery here was in use.  The second picture shows on of the deep shelter entrances.
