SS26 Searchlight Position and Observation Post Gibraltar
Posted on December 4, 2015 / 690
Location :
Condition : Good

This is a WW2 Searchlight Position built over an older Coastal Battery.  There is little remaining of the old gun battery apart from one of the metal rings used to secure a gun carriage.

This was formerly Halfway Battery with two guns. This was 2 x 32lbs smoothbores, at least until at least 1859.  By 1886 there was no armaments at this location. 

There is some graffiti dated 1940 on the center of the sea facing wall.

Reasonable state of repair.
