CHURCH STREET BUNKER
WEST END, TOWNSVILLE, QLD
USED DURING WW2
The 31st Battalion "moved from Denham St. to the house mentioned by Loftus Dun, in Church St, up against Castle Hill. The signallers had built a bunker into the Hill, with quite big logs - at least 18" in diameter. I doubt that a direct hit would have done much damage, because the logs on the roof were huge and covered with dirt. While we were in the HQ at Church St, at West End, the signallers operated there all the time".
Could this presence at West End be the connection with the stone buildings at West End and the communications cable?
