I'm no expert, but I'm sure I've seen photos of similar sites in action where they had a rangefinder mounted on top of the "E" shaped building. Possibly some sort of acoustic device as well.
Why are the gun pits relatively close to the command post? Would not the blast from the AA guns knock the optical rangefinder out of calibration?The structure in the centre is the Command Post, the open section containing the optical instruments. The other four structures appear to be 1941 Pattern gun pits.
Apparently not in the case of the 3.7" and 4.5" guns. The guns were clustered around the Command Posts to allow the offset for each gun to be calculated so I understandWhy are the gun pits relatively close to the command post?

Diver sites left little or no remains as they used a portable holdfast known as a Pile Portable Platform.Looked at the map and none of the local sites I'm aware of seem listed..... although they may have been more mobile as little remains to indicate where they were .....possibly also later than the map as I think several local ones were anti diver sites .
Piccies here.The inners were for ammunition and the two outers were shelters, one said to be for the use of the Limber Gunner.
