I wish to thank Mousa Saad for giving me the opportunity to publish these photographs of the WWII Bunker walls.
As can be seen I have been able to research some of the graphiti. [Don]
Presumably South Australia [Don]
10th Battalion, South African Engineer Corp. [Don]
SX10879 Cpl Jesse Roy Tregeagle,
2/43rd Australian Infantry Battalion
Born 30 Jul 1910, Died in action New Guinea 1-10-1943, Home town Tea Tree Gully, Adelaide, South Australia. [Don]
SX5348 Pt. Albert Kevin Pierpoint 2/43rd Infantry Battalion, born Queenbeyan, South Australia 24 June 1913 died 21 Nov 1966 [Don]
This is a scan of Italian coast artillery fire control centre. This bunker was situated east of the harbour [Tobruk].
The graffiti on the wall I think is Marine Hotel , tobruk bar entrance.' East London. Personally I think it says Public Bar Entrance [Don S].
As l lived two years in Cape Town some time ago, I am sure this is a South African address.
Also see the ESSEX ARMS (I see there are quite a few in the U K. I see on the net there is today in East London a marine lodge hotel ???? I think the person who wrote this must have worked at the hotel. I will send next the pin-up photos that I filmed. Kindest Regards, Don Budge.
There is other graphiti at the top right but it is unreadable except a few letters. [Don S]
