The Type 27 pillbox was one of the standard defensive strongpoints built in England during WWII to counter the anticipated German invasion. It was larger structure, with an enclosed area for riflemen and light machine guns and an open roof pit with a light AA mount such as a Bren gun.
They are octagonal in shape and generally have loopholes in 7 of the walls, with the entrance in the last, sometimes with flanking embrasures. The entrance is usually also protected by a covered porch with another embrasure. The Type 27 was built from both concrete and bricks.
In order to aid with placing models inside, this is designed without an interior blast wall, and with a removable roof. A pintle-mounted Bren gun is also supplied.
Regional and other variations are also possible, please contact us for further information or with specific requests.
