Embrasure by the canal
Embrasure by the canal
Another type 28a bricked up but more unusual is size of this embrasure, normally the slot is smaller for infantry small arms, this looks like it could have housed a Vickers machine gun, but more likely the 6 pounder Hotchkiss the opposite side is the same. SU5366 : Opposite side
