    wonder what they are like inside? do they have a step all the way round so you can peep out of it?

    They're not that deep so you can look out 360 degrees. They also have a rail at hand height that goes all the way around - apparently for mounting a machine gun on..

    That's a fabulous one. In really good condition too, by the look of it. Nice find and pics. :)
