The Operations Base (OB) no longer exists and was half way up the bank of the hill. At the bottom of the hill is a rubbish tip that was mistaken for the remains of the OB and one research site in particular shows this which is wrong. About 150 yds to the North is a Observation Post (OP) still in situ.

According to the Nominal rolls Pte Marcus A Bell JCSN/65/3  and  Pte Hohn Conyers JGSN/34/2 were earlier members of the Uni A 4 sided concrete lined structure

All corners have a "joint system" to enable the structure to be rigid

In this area is the remains of what we think is the Explosive Store, but we were unable to find it due to the lush undergrowth

This is the view from the OP. During the war the trees were much smaller and would have gave a view straight over the top.
