Porthleven Auxiliary Unit Patrol

Our Devon CIO Nina has just added a patrol report to the site on the Porthleven Auxiliary Unit Patrol in Cornwall.

They gained access to their Operational Base through a break in an old stone wall which was concealed by a hatch which was opened by lifting the attached ivy. This led into a wood lined tunnel 6-7 feet long. There was then a drop down to the more familiar OB structure of a corrugated iron hut approximately 12 x 16 feet. A further wood lined tunnel came off the main body of the OB leading to a smaller area where some of the explosives were stored.
