Type and Period (2)
Four gun emplacements forming an anti-aircraft battery can be seen close to Pakefield Cliffs in 1945 (S1,S2). The tracks linking the emplacements and a number of associated nissen huts can also be seen. The battery is most likely to be a DIVER battery, as it was built after September 1944 (it doesn't appear on any earlier photographs) and the emplacements are laid out in a distinctive linear form.
