    Chris, they have another now, just recently been there, they are doing work to stabilise the cliff area, and are also arranging to do more excavating around the area, apparently there are a number of dug outs that have never been investigated.

    I could have done that years ago ,but was talk into not doing it because this bunker is air close due to the debris from the US bombing and if someone open it ,it would explose because of the dynamite in it.
