British hardened field defences of World War II[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contribution to the article British hardened field defences of World War II.

I hope you will help me understand your contribution. I have not previously heard of a Type 20/2 pillbox and it seems from the description that you might have in mind something I have previously heard called an Eared pillbox. I did not understand the reference you provided - another editor has now deleted those references. Gaius Cornelius (talk) 19:56, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

The reference refers to the Norfolk Historical Environment Record. I've updated the reference to include a link to their site and added some text to indicate the similarity of the type 20/2 to the eared pillbox. The main difference being the angle of the emplacements to each other. The eared pillbox having a shallow angle with the type 20/2 being closer to 90 degrees. FYI I'm the author of the Google Earth Defence of Britain overlay and have seen pretty much every variant pillbox type in existence whilst checking the accuracy of the placemarks in Google Earth. I'm currently in the process of adding sites that are not in the original database but do occur in the National Monument Record and the various online Historical Environment Records. This is how I've learnt about these variants. I've added a link to the Essex Lozenge reference too, there are tens of this type still in existence so I wasn't sure why the comment questioned if it was a recognised type so I deleted it. I'll admit to coining the name but they don't have an official type that I've seen listed so it needs a name to distinguish it from the normal Lozenge pillbox which is Hexagonal rather than Octagonal.Stthomse (talk) 18:31, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
