Antiaircraft Magazine
Fort Bulkley, HD Seward
Home  |  Seward

The planned antiaircraft defense of Rugged Island consisted of two 37-mm AA guns and four 50 caliber machine guns to be emplaced along the ridge to the east of Battery Const. #294. The gun positions were never constructed, but a 300 square foot magazine located nearby was completed except for the back fill. Several magazines of similar design were constructed at Caines Head and include the war reserve magazines and the Antiaircraft magazine.
