Their OB was located within a small Wooded area which back in 1940 was in the middle of nowhere.
Today it stands within a housing estate but the OB is no longer accessible.
We believe the Patrols objectives would have been the monitoring of the Coastline with Bridlington, which had a suitable harbour and facilities to offload supplies and equipment. The main Coastal Railway ran not too far from the OB giving ample opportunity for sabotage work
