Type and Period (3)
A Type 24 pillbox (hexagonal in plan with one longer wall) can be seen on recent photographs taken at RAF Bawdsey in 1998. The pillbox is not visible on photographs from the 1940s but it is presumably of World War II date. It may have been camouflaged or obscured by the nearby trees (S1) (S2).
