South Sutor Extended Defence Officers Post (XDO Post). The anti-submarine minefield would have been controlled from here. The officer in the post would have the responsibility of electrically firing the minefield if a submarine was detected in the firth. Linked electrically to the XDO Post was a loop of cable on the sea bed, and whenever a ship or submarine sailed over it, the magnetic field signatures from them would cause a current to flow in the loop, causing a light to flash in the XDO Post. If it was an enemy that was detected, the controlling officer could set off a line of mines lying in the centre of the loop. All the mines would go off simultaneously.
