FW3/24 Pillbox beside the B1105 at Egmere
The type FW3/24 pillbox is not common in the area. This example being the lighter version, has walls almost two feet (60cms) thick. The five forward facing embrasures still have the metal frames in place. The complement would be a maximum of eight men firing five light machine guns and two SL rifles.
