    Default Montrose Air Field Command Bunker

    I'm posting this in reply to another thread which includes a bunker identical to this that has been sealed off so the inside can't be seen. This one however can be accessed via the escape hatch thats on the side of the observation post. I'll keep updating this thread over the next half hour or so with a few photos at a time

    Heres the first ones of the exterior of the lookout post and the escape hatch and ladder

    Heres the third lot, showing the main command room. The last photo shows the doorway that I took the third photo from, that leads to the lookout post and escape hatch.

    Heres the third set of photos, these show the corridor linking the main command room to the what I believe was the toilet, the door to the main enterance (which is blocked by sand) and the 2 smaller rooms.

    Hi All

    First off i`m new to the forum so hello to all.
    I`m the owner and main resercher for www.battlehq.info myself and 2 other are working our way across the UK recording Battle HQ`s
    could you give me a OS grid ref for the location or drop me a flash earth link.

    I`ll add this to the list of 18 other bunkers in Scotland that I`v got to visit.

    many thanks
