A small wooden hut with hinged shutters over the windows stand on the south side of the compound and this was obviously used by the ROC. It has maps on the wall and paperwork lying around, There is some furniture including tables and chairs plus kitchen utensils and artefacts from the underground post including the four vents which look unused. It seems likely that some time was spent in this hut rather than underground. The hut is open.
