Vickers machine gun

Peter Hibbs of The Defence of East Sussex Project brought his Vickers machine gun to the pillbox near the river mouth. He wanted to see how the tripod fitted on the concrete gun platforms and look at the effective angle of fire. It created a lot of interest for visitors and there are plans to raise awareness of the pillboxes.
