    I made an evening excursion to the lovely town of Rovinj, Croatia and took the following photographs of a small coastal bunker situated right at the point of the peninsular, between both harbours, but without a view of both.

    It appears to be too samll for a heavy weapon and I would say it was for observation or heavy Machine gun etc.

    It looked too old for the civil war and I thought perhaps it was a WW2 Italian build.

    If anyone knows any history of this bunker, it would be appreciated.

    I could not find any more military fixtures around the area.

    Secret Army,

    Thanks for the website.

    The area in the extreme east of Italy around Trieste was always changing hands over many years.

    I believe that the Allies thought that Tito had desires on that area and hence the move south by my fathers unit, amongst others, to Trieste.
    It was a similar Policing operation to that of Greece and the force was sent to deal with any threats from the Partisan Army, which was extremely powerful and had for a long time pinned down many German Divisions that were sorely needed elsewhere.
