Home  |  Seward

The Battery Command station for Battery Const. #293 is located on top of the magazine structure at Caines Head. In addition to its role as a BC, the station was also provided with the necessary equipment to act as an emergency base end and spotting station, should the need arise.

Many of the original fittings remain in the station today, including the frames for two fold-down cots and the heavy metal shields for the observation slit.
