    Interesting Photos from Tigbrand

    Posted by spotter for Tigbrand
    Hi chaps, these pics are all of military interest on Portland in Dorset, this area is full of fortifications and a lot remains to be seen. Here are some pics of some gunsites and ordnance that i have taken. They are,
    Pic-1 SC250(This is an sc250 i think! in Portland museum).
    Pic 2 East weares 9.2 inch gun emplacement, 1 of 2 on this site.(Near naval Base).
    Pic 3 Victorian gunpit at East weares(Battery near naval cemy),showing gun barrel used as pivot for later gun.
    Pic 4 High angle mortar pits at high angle battery, next to the verne citadel.
    Pic 5 is an anti shipping mine at folly pier , should be saved.
    And finally Pic 6 View of breakwater fort, part of harbour defences on portland breakwater, used victorian period to late 50s when coastal defence was scrapped.
    Hope this is of interest.

    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

    And as can be observed one has practiced trepanizing on the bomb body. In other words; cut a hole with a portable milling machine in the outer body to enable the TNT to be steamed out.
