Klein Gibraltar Battery

The Klein Gibraltar site still remains but is not recognisable to the layman. The concrete structure on the left is a WWII  “Ready  Magazine” protecting  ammunition for a 6 pounder gun similar to the one seen below overlooking Hermanus Old Harbour. At the far end of end of magazine is the gun platform with its circular mounting.
