The WW1 Gun (and WW2 searchlight) Gun emplacements on the Sutor Stacks. The link wire bridge seen in picture #148 (1990) is now pretty much gone.

The link wire bridge is on the north sutor searchlights. the access to both searchlights are by a flight of steps.
The ruined building is the not a gun emplacement but actually the WW1 searchlight position

Good point Allan - my mix up.

Thanks for an excellent 'aerial' view of a small landing space, in good weather, for my sea kayak, cos I've never actually been down to that area on foot . The WW2 'Boom Defence' anti submarine net
was tensioned, from the area close to these search light stacks.

Allan, I'm not 100% on the position of the 'fixings', but I remember going with my father delivering coal & coke to the Gun emplacement area, the Radar Stn., the Coastguard Watch-hut, and him telling me about a net for catching ''boats that go under the sea'', pointing towards the sea below. At seven years old in '43 that was a phrase I could understand.

Where can I get a list of people stationed at the army camp about 1944; can anyone help?
