Constructed during WW2 on or very near airfields to provide the Station Commander with a secure location in which he could direct the defence of the airfield in the event of being attacked by hostile ground forces. Ideally, the B.H.Q. was constructed almost entirely below ground for concealment and protection, only the thick, square roof of the O.P and the safety handrail surrounding the main stairwell being visible. However, if the water table was high then the B.H.Q. accordingly built higher up, with earth banked up against the sides and over the roof for camouflage and protection. The conditions inside were cramped and claustrophobic, the OP only being 6’ by 6’
