A positive location would help.

Thanks Martin, I have managed to relate it's location to a post-war (just) aerial photo and it would appear to be just to the north of the northernmost hangar and just outside the perimeter track. Possibly a LAA position but small at around 6 feet (2m) in diameter. More likely a defence position such as a prefab pillbox.
