A.M.T.B. Battery
Fort Worden, HD Puget Sound
A.M.T.B. btry Ft. Flagler.

The 90 mm Anti-Motor Torpedo Boat (A.M.T.B.) battery at Point Wilson was constructed in late 1943 to provide rapid fire defense against small, fast boats. The battery included four 90 mm guns, two in fixed emplacements and two on mobile mounts.

Today the #2 emplacement has been broken up and is mostly covered by large rocks. The #1 emplacement is in better shape, but is still under cut and is starting to brake up.
