not Repulse Bay as the Flickr description says. You can see the golf club, pre-Ocean Park Brick Hill, and what appears to be pillbox 015 on the coastal Island Road

Hi there,

If that is what I think it would be sad to say, the structure is most likely destroyed by the widening of Island Road in the late 1970's or the early 1980's as what I just saw, the structure appeared to be slightly lower than the road level.

Best Regards,



Good find! We've been trying to get a photo of that area for ages. On the full-size photo, it looks as though the pillbox could be just above the fence post, at the bottom of a slope running down from the road.

Then just to the left is a blocky structure almost at road level - the Lyon Light perhaps?

Regards, David
