Inspecting the beach defences ...

General Robert Odd, commander of Southern Army Group, inspects the beach defences north of Freazingham by the Sea. He is being shown around by the officer in charge of this section of the coast ....

the main defensive trench ...
 and the gun emplacement ....
General Odd, after leaving had much on his mind - there was still a lot of work required on the beach defences - barbed wire, tank traps, mines etc - he got out his notebook and made some notes as his staff car bumped along the coast road.
