Cold war Bunkers & other relics


Dunlop_ROC_post.jpg

The Royal Observer Core was established in 1925 to identify hostile aircraft. In the 1950's they were given the additional task of monitoring a nuclear attack on the UK for which some 1500 underground concrete bunkers were built in every corner of the UK. The ROC was stood down in 1991 but many of the monitoring post can still be spotted. For more info check out Sub Brit's web site
