Undocumented FC Stations
Dutch Harbor
Home  |  Dutch Harbor


There are a number of what appear to be improvised fire control stations in the Dutch Harbor area, including one at Ft. Learnard and two at Ft. Schwatka.

No documentation regarding the installations has been forthcoming. One possibility is that they were related to early defenses such as the Ulakta Head 155mm battery which was removed from the harbor defenses prior to 1944.
