Line of Gap Pillbox No. 16 (LPB 16)

Also known as Kennedy Town Gap PB.  A three-loophole PB situated on the hillside above Pofulam Road near Queen Mary Hospital. It has been occupied as a dwelling.  The building is well cared for and the area around the PB has been gardened. The steel loophole shutters look in very good condition. I could not see the commanders observation tower and ventilation shaft (presumably demolished). I was unable to go inside  or stay too long as I felt I was intruding on somebody's home. 

PB 16 - now used as a dwelling (Writer's collection)

Steel shutters and latch in good condition. Some pebble cladding extant. (Writer's collection)
