Welcome to this blog which is intended to accompany a website on how Suffolk was defended during the Second War. The blog will describe my trips out and about looking for the remains of the Second War defences while the Website will concentrate on putting these into context.

Waveney Forest

Over the border into Norfolk today to visit Waveney Forest - looking for Waveney Redoubt which sounds similar to the one at North Warren - didnt find it but many training earthworks in the forest including a possible LMG emplacement (although I'm not fully convinced!).
Also a couple of pillboxes including the 1st war one (see Henry Wills book - when still obviously still in use as a booking office).
Top and second down - 1st world war pillbox.
Third and fourth down - type 22
Fifth down - possible LMG weapons-pit with 'extension' for bren tripod to fire on fixed line.
Bottom - LMG weapons-pit with extension for bren tripod to fire on fixed line - Military Training Pamphlet No 30 Part V Protective Works
