This was one of a number of such practice works constructed during 1943 as part of the intensive rehearsals for the Allied D-Day landings. The 49th and the 52nd (Lowland) Divisions trained in the area in 1943-44, along with the 1/4th King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, based in Crieff. The World War II constructions look as if they are broadly of one piece. The main defensive elements (e.g. German positions) comprise a section of reinforced concrete Atlantic Wall, fronted by an anti-tank ditch. Bunkers and gun emplacements are linked by a trench system that makes use of, and extends, the World War I trenches.
