The remains of the "temporary wood frame shelter" for searchlight no. 20 just below the Base End station. Construction on Ataku Island was halted in late 1944 so the planned concrete shelters were never constructed. The remains of SLT. NO. 19 are around the hill behind the Base End station. The shelters would have held generators and the searchlights would have been placed infront of them on concrete mounts.
