Field Visit (24 August 2017)

Nothing is now visible in an area of deciduous woodland of a World War Two light anti-aircraft battery which is noted in a document held by the National Archives at Kew (WO 166 7369). The battery was one of at least five constructed to protect the Royal Navy oil tank farm at Mountblow (NS47SE 79). Similar arrangements of light anti-aircraft batteries were established around a number of vulnerable points, either military or industrial, along the banks of the Clyde.
