Details

The Tobruk defence.
This is the only outward defence the bunker has, the machine-gun could fire 360degrees and also as an anti-aircraft gun, so very useful all around. Also either through a speaking tube or a field telephone the soldier in the Tobruk could spot for mortar fire and be the eyes of the bunkers crew.
