Rear of 20th century gun position
Rear of 20th century gun position
This the rear of the main gun position.
Those two boxes in the middle of the picture are "ready" ammunition magazines, where a few rounds could be kept for a quick action, rather than waiting for ammo to be hoisted up from the main magazine.
They are all around the position,and once had steel doors to protect the ammunition.
