The post was excavated and completley destroyed a month after stand down. According to former Obs. Alan Bradshaw "As the post was the nearest to ROC HQ at Bentley Priory, it was usually the one that the Comdt took his pals or VIP's to visit and was used for the filming of the SSVC film 'Forewarned is Forearmed' and was always kept well spruced up despite having a severe damp problem"
