News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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
