This hexagonal pit would have had an Oerlikon 40mm light anti aircraft gun mounted in it.
This was a Swiss designed gun manufactured under licence in the UK during WW2.

Hopefully I`ve worked out how to post pics now !!

I thought these pics were of the Dunkirk site but now I`m not so sure ...I don`t remember there being a mast remaining !

I do remember the buildings in the other pics in this thread but I`m not sure if mine were as close as I seem to recall. They can`t have been to far as it was about 15 minutes drive from whitstable.

But who knows maybe my memory is playing tricks, it was 27 years ago ....oh god ! I`m getting old !

Here are some photos of the site from a couple of years ago.
Still got a few bits to look at on this site too.
