    Angry Strange ww2 structures found

    discovered this odd looking structure kindof close to an old RAF airfield (RAF Elgin) but this building itself is quite far from where the airfield is I think, anyone know what purpose it served assuming it is a ww2 building, few 1930/40s era glass bottles, took too many pictures so ill try seperate them, curious to know if the metal "relics" are part of the building or post war junk(?) ridiculousl challenging to photo it due to all the "jungle" overgrowth

    other walled structure across the path from the first structure, about 30 metres away from each other with a gate path between them that leads into a big farm field for cows:

    I agree or maybe blast proof pens for open air aircraft parking/storage!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I agree with Harry , its a bomb or ammunition storage building makes sense its away from the main airfield , if something goes bang it wouldnt damage the airfield

    Been mulling over this one - I'm afraid we're in guesswork territory but the first set of photos look like some for of installation for large generator/pumping equipment ( those look like mounting bolts embedded in the concrete ). Possibly fuel, or ( less likely ) searchlight....?

    Is this near Lossiemouth? The glass jar is an old orange juice container I remember them as a kid

    Still working at this one. Elgin was a satellite for Lossiemouth ; built in 1940 with a grass runway it was never used operationally but 20OTU were there with Wellingtons.

    I'm now reasonably sure that the first set of photos show the remains of a fuel pumphouse ( maybe for aviation fuel but also possibly for MT ). It is possible that the second set of photos show the remains of a Pyrotchnic/Incendiary store ( Elgin is known to have had one to AM 18185/40 ). A lot of concrete has been removed as have most of the earth revetments, traces of which are still visible in the pics.
