Excuses for the over dominating watermarks on some of these photos. The amount of pilfering from my website has been excessive at times.

Pillboxes, bunkers and concrete shelters:-



There were several of these structures dotted about on Pengelih hill. They ranged from what I could tell, observation posts, pillboxes and simple concrete shelters with a "V" shaped floor plan.

There were 2 structures that interested me the most, one appeared to be a shelter for one of the 8 pounder guns (pic10) and another, near the oil storage area (pic9), seemed to be a parts store. I did initially think it could be for ammunition, but being so close to the oil dump seemed rather dangerous.

All the structures were in pretty bad condition, one would imagine some of the damage was caused by the British own denial scheme implemented before they surrendered. However unfortunately there is also much modern day damage and vandalism. Scrap iron merchants have clearly been tearing away at this site for some time and the casual day tripper graffiti tags can be seen, with some even dating back to the 1970's.
