Coastal gun-2

No doubt the experts know where this is

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, June 15, 1941


This photo appears in "Ruins of War" which states it is of the Mount Davis Battery. It's probably the third gun emplacement, counting either from the bottom or top. If so, just behind it, partly hidden by the barbed wire fence and trees, is another emplacement, the fourth counting from the bottom and second from the top, which was converted into a water tank at some point. The photo seems to have been taken from the top of the flight of steps leading to the top gun emplacement past the observation hut.   

Thanks GW, I've added Mount Davis Battery as the Place for this photo. The boat in the background looks like one I've seen in other photos, sailing past Green Island along Sulphur Channel.

Regards, David.
