Pillbox type FW3/22 (variant): DoB ID S0012718

This second type 22 pillbox can be found about 110 metres west of the previous structure, close to the perimeter fence of Southampton's international airport. Both are located on either side of a cluster of ruined building platforms, and assumed therefore to have been part of the ground defences of the wartime RNAS HMS Raven. They are apparently this airfield's sole surviving WW2 defences.
