Mount Pleasant Heavy Anti-aircraft Artillery Battery, Lyttelton

Mount Pleasant Heavy Anti-aircraft Artillery Battery, Lyttelton

In early 1942 surveys were carried out with a view to establishing four fixed HAA batteries around Lyttelton Harbour. Quail Island was chosen as one of the sites.
As the threat of enemy attack receded only one HAA battery was built. This was on high ground above the port of Lyttelton.
Although the contract was allocated in November 1942, by August 1942 work had already begun.
