Because they expected the Nazi invasion to start at Felixstowe, lots of gun emplacements were built in the area in 1940; after the war they took the guns away but more or less left the emplacements behind. While he was inspecting one of these, Mr Monkey saw a lifeboat in a cloud of water as it sped across the harbour.
