Photos that show this place


We've been sent a photo of the beach as it looked in Booth's time:

1950s Repulse Bay

B/W footage of Repulse Bay, Eucliffe and pillboxes as seen here In 1:49 into the video, there is a clear view of a pillbox on the beach. Pillbox 018 ?

Yes, looks like a candidate for number 18. The tall building looks like a Lyon Light building. There's a lower building in front that looks the right size for a pillbox, but I can't see any of the openings that would confirm it.

The walls have an unusual finish, maybe it was a type of camouflage?
