Bowen Bunkers

#1
I've seen a photo of a "Bowen Bunker" built in Borneo in 1964-65. It looks rather substantial and sturdy. Built half in, half out of the ground ,with a corrugated iron "visor" under what looks like a thickness of about six sand bags. What is a Bowen Bunker?

Anyone ever heard of them?

Cheers

All I could find in google, it looks like a style of revetting for Artillary positions, some old sapper or gunner should have an old pamflet on knocking them up!

Thanks very much for the lightning reply.

My google powers were weak and returned nothing. However the pics posted above, look nothing like the photo I described. (Think "Hindenberg line.)

For those who know these things, are there any distinguishing features in the pics posted above that would differentiate them from any standard artillery revetment?
