Support Defence Post L20

Posted on May 14, 2023 / 5
Listing Type : Malta Pillboxes
Location : Malta

Support Defence Post L20 lies 20 metres to the front of Zonqor Battery.  It is now heavily overgrown and hard to see.  This is a single structure Post with tower on the South-West side.  Unusually it is dug into the slope, so only the front two loopholes have a field of fire.  There is also an extension to the rear of the Defence Post, further limiting its’ view.  It is assumed that this was a Command Position, dug in for protection, with clear views over Marsaskala and St Thomas Bay.
