Yeah all the batteries closed and the guns removed in 1956.  It seems like just about everywhere was the same.  I haven't come across any batteries lasting longer than that!

Those look more like 1940s/50s from the webbing and lightweight jersey one of the guys is wearing. Did the pom pom range close at the same time? I'm ashamed to say I can remember that!! P
