A leisurely walk from a long row of officer's quarters on Cheney Road brings will bring you to a small, shaded lane that leads to Battery Wheeler. To our left is a spare gun barrel.
Battery Wheeler is located at the southern section of the area known as Topside, and was the scene of intense fighting during the island's liberation in 1945.
A corridor in Battery Wheeler's ground level shows the scars of war.
Now silent and still, Battery Wheeler's remaining gun lies on its mount. Note the shrapnel marks on the barrel, and the damage to the concrete base on the extreme left of the photo.
