Air Raid Shelter Number 8 in Gibraltar

There are defenses with battle scars across Gibraltar from wars throughout its history dating back to the 12th century. Among them are air-raid shelters built in 1939. Other World War II preparations were digging 30 miles of tunnels in The Rock, installing anti-aircraft batteries and evacuating all of the citizens in 1940. Support for the Allies included an airfield for bombers, a staging zone for over a half million troops plus accommodating thousands of warships passing through the strait.
